I would do a wavy meander to mimic water currents. Of course the more I look at the little pic I think I may be seeing the sky instead of water. In which case I would do a meander with star shapes every so often.
denise, what pattern are you the most comfortable with. i would do that one, relax and have fun.

I agree with Gini, I think anything you do will be lovely. I immediately thought of a shell pattern. Please post pictures after you're done.
I wish it was a bigger picture, but what about a large modified clam shell? ( Like the rainbow), but outline the stars, and go "under " them.
You could also echo the stars and other objects. The meandering stars suggested by Nana would work well for the border if you echo quilt.

No help from me as the pic is too small for me to tell if its a sky or sea theme, but I wanted to say how much I love your border of four different colours. I would never have thought of that in a million years. Wonderful.
here's what i do. i quilt it and hate the work i've done, i stick it in a dark hole for a few months. when i drag it back out it miraculously looks wonderful. something about the dark hole and time makes them look better.
I looked to me, like it wanted lots of meandering stars. I usually have been putting my quilts on the long arm, look at them for a day or two, draw on my dry erase board a few ideas, and then just dive right in. Post pics of this when its done, I love the colors!
Denise, I would sit down at the machine and tet my imagination take over as I started to quilt - if I thought of something that I wanted to do specifically in some sections I might mark them - but this looks like a fun quilt with lots of opportunities.
I would outline and echo around what ever features I wanted to stand out the most. Then I would meander the rest of the quilt or loops. I find loops to be sooooo much easier in my mind. Good luck. I am sure whatever you decide to do it will look awesome.
