    I agree with the idea of doing a meandering (loop da loops). Very pretty fabric and design.

    This is what I was going to suggest except mix stars and loops on your curvy line. I have done this on a couple of Christmas projects and it is just the right simple touch with lots of straight lines and angles.

    That's a very cool quilt. The colors are great, the white will really show the quilting nicely.

    I would use a camel colored thread that will read as gold. It's what I used on these two quilts. Camel thread will look good on all the colors in your quilt and won't get lost on any of them. If you choose red or green, the stitching that you do on the same color patches will get lost, look almost invisible, like you missed a spot.

    I like to do easy swirls and curls with some of those easy 5-pointed stars, especially on Christmas theme quilts for friends or on Quilts of Valor like these Just be nice and smooth and even in your speed, and have some fun with it.

    And please share with us when you've finished. It will be a terrific quilt!
