Default Ideas please for quilting my Judy Neimeyer Desert Sky.

Oh dear, I've finished my top and now I can't for the life of me decide how to quilt it. For those of you who have done this quilt can you give me any ideas or show me a pic of yours? I fear it may end up languishing in a box unless inspiration hits me!!

I'm in the same boat with my Feathered Star by Judy. I've had it done since February and still scared to quilt it. I am going to use an invisible thread (color smoke) to keep from changing thread and hopefully hid any errors.

Thankyou QuiltnNan and Joyce888. I've looked at the link and done some other searches but am still stumped. I usually do quite close quilting like an allover spiral, or all over vertical straight lines with only 1/2" between each line. I like the dense, simple quilting as it looks clean and doesn't compete with the patchwork at all on the other quilts I've done. I'd like to do an all over straight vertical lines with this quilt but am a bit nervous. I've always thought that the close quilting lines help a pattern stand out but I'm not so sure this time so was hoping someone had done similar to advise me. Thanks again for your opinions.
