Default Colored Pencil Quilt quilting suggestions needed!

I usually have a plan for quilting by this stage of the quilt making process. I seem to be stumped. I am adding a thin purple border and the a border of 2 inch blocks alternating white and the colors of the quilt. The pencils are what I just can't figure out how to quilt. I do fmq on my Janome 6600. Suggestions please!!!

I might put a curvy line down the middle of each pencil after stitching in the ditch between the pencils. jmho

I might do straight lines down each pencil in matching coloured thread as if they are the octagon shape of HB pencils. Very cute top!

i was thinking curves down the pencil but then straight lines would look good to. perhaps every other one.

I was thinking about a line down the middle in gold thread - as labels are often in gold print on colored pencils. This looks like a fun quilt!

It makes me think of little kids playing with color. How about a series of kittens, puppies, balloons or other things that kids would color?
