Default Quilting ideas for disappearing 4 patch

I stitched up an "emergency" quilt for my sister who is critically ill. It started with 10 inch blocks from which I made the disappearing 4 patch. It is a simple red and white quilt. Would you share your ideas for how to quilt this? I'm finding practically nothing online. I need to get this done fairly quickly, but I don't want to do an all over meander. Thank you in advance!

Since it is in red and white, how about a simple heart in the big squares and little heart in the small squares?

Without seeing a picture of the quilt, I don't have any ideas other than a pretty panto instead of a meander, I find pantos go pretty fast. Unless you are using a DSM, of course.

Prayers for your sister.

Thank you for the prayers! Here is a picture of the quilt top. I'm sorry it's turned sideways.

That's very pretty! I would do something curvy. You didn't say, are you quilting on a frame or your DSM?

I'm not sure yet. I share a long arm, but have been doing more at home on my little Bernina lately.

maybe simple continous curves on the larger squares and then just travel along the seam(SID) through the crosses
