Long, graceful curves along the dark and light diagonal lines would look nice. You could space them close together like cross-hatching - or leave them as wide apart as your batting recommends.
Joanne, would you believe I've never machine quilted anything?? I'm a little scared to start on this one, though I have to say that as I was pressing all those seams, the thought did occur to me, "huh. Quilting this should be interesting..." I'll have to think that one over, I guess. Especially since my only machine is my old antique Singer.

Could you explain a little more about your cross-hatching curvy lines idea? I'm trying to visualize it. Feather curves? Or just lines?
Long sweeping lines - much easier. That's what I did on a LC several years ago. I just search for a picture with no luck.
