Default quilting jelly roll race

Does anyone have suggestions for a design or pattern for quilting a jelly roll race quilt?

My understanding of one is just sewing jelly roll strips together with no other pattern, maybe not?

I have the quilt top all assembled. I'm trying to decide is there is a good free style quilting design that is compatible with the strips. Stitch in the ditch seems kind of boring.

A JR quilt seems like the perfect opportunity to try the decorative stitches on your machine.

I did a stippling design (might sound boring, but it turned out quite nice).

I like to cut the strips into fourths before I sew to get less puddling and then I like to SITD with all my decorative stitches

Any overall pattern would probably be nice. The piecing is very linear, so I like to use a swirly design in the quilting.

Agreed dunster! I think this is a (kind of) utilitarian type design and the stippling would make it more washable to hold up.

I did a simple all-over pattern that I made up. Here is the back of one of my race quilts. (It's a bit difficult to see.) I appliqued flowers on the front and pretty much copied the shape of the flower.
