Default Convergence quilt

I am at a loss as to how to quilt this convergence quilt. I am calling it Mardi Gras Migration. Help me not have a headache!

How about around each pedal then straight lines in the other spaces?

I think I would use a swirl pattern.

Pretty top! I might use straight lines going in the directions of the sections.

I have no suggestion as to quilting this, but where can I find the pattern? I love it.

Google Ricky Tims convergence quilt. Several videos and he has a book out as well.

Because it is so linear, I would probably do wavy lines down each 'stripe' with the larger stripes having a couple wavy lines. I'm not sure about the borders, definitely another curvy thing, perhaps lots of butterflies. No matter what, it will be great because it is such an unusual and terrific top. So different and unique - great job!

I was thinking concentric circles beginning in one of the corners. It's a lovely quilt!

since it is so linear, I would definitely use swirls to break up the design. Pretty top.

I ditched my lines and added a LARGE feather off-centered across one side. You could also do outline/echo quilting around the butterflies.
