Default How should I quilt this?

I'm not even close to ready to actually quilt this yet, but I wanted to start early with the suggestions. I need to do something simple. Not free motion quilting for me!!!! Straight lines kind of quilting, but with each block being quite different, I'm a little stumped on just how to do it. Please note that I will be using a camel colored backing and border and I will be using green thread to quilt, so the back of the quilt will be very contrasted. Hence, my concern with crazy lines that will be very evident.

I would probably do diagonal lines but mark them all out with a ruler so they are as straight as possible. This is a very cool quilt. I like that you used the badges in some of the blocks.

You could also use a meander over the whole quilt.

you could match your bobbin thread to the backing to minimize contrast. No suggestions as to quilting it, I have that same problem with every quilt I make.
