Quilt top from SMS Modern BOM July 2011

36 Blocks, with 2" sashing between rows and 4" sashing for a border around the whole quilt. Fabrics are Ash, Grey, Iris, and Red-Violet from Connecting Threads. Quilt top measures approximately 80" x 90". It is for a wedding gift for a good friend. I did kind of an improvised pieced backing, incorporating a coordinating print that will be used for the binding (it's closest to the red-violet in color)...just need to quilt this thing!

 

I'd love some suggestions on quilting...currently I am either going to do straight line quilting on the horizontal, or kind of follow the corners of the colored blocks, also on the horizontal. But I am not completely sold on either and I'd love to hear what others would do!
