Default Suggestions for Quilting Design

I am looking for suggestions on how to quilt this. Any ideas would be much appreciated.


This is a large quilt, queen size, about 84 x 96. The blocks are 4 1/2 inches. I plan on quilting this on my DSM, a Viking Topaz 20. I quilt using the embroidery feature. This means hooping each design. I am struggling to decide how to place the quilting designs. The largest size I can hoop/quilt is 8 inches. Originally I was planning to quilt a cute design in the white center blocks. (There are 71 of the 4 1/2 inch squares!) Maybe SID for the rails, but couldn't decide what to do in the 9 patches.
I do have a walking foot so I can just straight line the 9 patches and rails.
OR I could center an 8 inch design in the white blocks, but it leaves gaps between designs, as the combined squares would be 13 1/2 inches. The quilting designs I have been considering are on this link. I have the designs in 4,5 and 8 inch sizes. https://www.queenofstitching.com/pal.../quilt-designs 25th Anniversary; Flower Bower maybe in combo with Morning Glory; or Tulip Wreath. I do have some quilting patterns that sort of mimic the E2E pantos as another quilting option. Then I guess I wouldn't center the designs, just link them up.
The other picture is of the pillow shams. I can use whatever 8 inch design I use on the quilt, and place it in the 4 corners, and quilt a 4 inch design in the center. Thanks for your help!

Lovely quilt! If you are going to hoop the white blocks, I would choose a coorindating look design for the 9 patches. For the stars I might meander in the gray background and SITD the star. I would then put designs in the center square and star triangles.

Beautiful quilt! I don't have any quilting ideas for you, but I know you will get many responses to your request.
I want to thank you for the link to the lovely machine embroidery quilt block designs.

No suggestions, but I am making a medallion quilt using your pillow sham block as the center. I love the scrappiness of your quilt!
