    I think a geometric outline with sharp corners would make it look uber modern, while a meander would make it look very traditional and cosy. I would fit the recipient into either category based on their tastes and quilt accordingly.

    I think it would look great either way!

    I think outline. because of it's geometric straight lines. The meandering I think would make the quilt look out of place because of its flowing lines. Just my opinion. It is very lovely!!!! nice colors too.

    I do almost all of mine with a large meander,stipple,FMQ, whatever you want to call it, I think it is the perfect quilting design for 99-1/2% of my quilts.
    It is beautiful and you did a great job on it.
    Good luck quilting it.
