Default Need suggestions for quilt design

This is a quilt for my dsl. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any suggestions on how to quilt this top? It is mostly alphabet panel blocks with strips in between.

Maybe an all over stipple? Or stipple the middle and do something else on the sides?

How about doing lines across as if the block letters were printed on lined paper? I would then outline stitch the frame and small stipple the background.

I have not had any success with FMQ, so being a SITD person, I would quilt horizontally and vertically following the lines in the black and red fabric. I really like the fabric, please post a picture of it when it is done!

did you notice that there is a capital U and a capital V then a small u and a small v. it should be Uu Vv. that's odd. i wonder if it is a "typo"?

No I did not notice. Will need to go back and look at all the panels.
