Wow you have to feel a huge sense of accomplishment upon finishing this ambitious project. Like suggested I would do
simple quilting: either serpentine or straight so as it doesn't overwhelm your complicated design. Congratulations on a great finish.

I would most likely do straight line quilting too. This is an interesting work of art. I love the sea shell. I can't wait to see it finished all the detail is so pretty.

What a fantastic job! And congratulations for not giving up - I know the feeling only too well!

I think some wavy lines following the piecing would look good.

I never considered using a cross-stitch pattern as the source for a quilt idea. When I saw your heading, I thought it would be a bunch of cross-stitched pictures set into a quilt. This is so incredibly creative and the final product is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing - I have a bag of cross-stitch patterns tucked away somewhere that might be resurrected one day when I'm looking for an epic project!

Ingenious to use a cross-stitch pattern!

For the missing background, you could consider putting a simple design in that corner and maybe also in the opposite. I'm thinking something like this, maybe in colors from your shell, or lighter versions of those colors:
