Default Cannot Decide How To Quilt This

With all the straight lines, I know I want something that will have some nice curves in an all-over pattern. Other than that, I am not sure. Do you have some ideas? Oh, by the way, I named it "Seattle".

Feathers and swirls? Swirls and pebbles? Baptist fan? I am better at coming up with custom quilting ideas than E2E, but I hope these help you in your process of figuring out how to quilt this beauty!

Big flowers or fans in each block?

Wow, I had not thought of feathers! I could make them any size I want, or even different sizes. Thanks so much.

Well, the Seattle area has been very windy the last couple of days, so maybe parallel horizontal curves that make you think of wind?

I have no idea on how to quilt it as I always send mine to a LA. I just wanted to tell you your quilt is beautiful. Love your fabric choices. Good luck on ideas and I am sure someone on this board will be very helpful for you.

Feathers, all over! Have feather creative fun while you go, recreating your own style. Did that on a queen size "Circle A-Round" quilt and the more you do the better it gets! btw, what is the name of this quilt design. It is beautiful.
