A basted quilt and a request for quilting ideas

I’m not sure that I’ve mentioned that I joined in the Starburst QAL over at Happy Quilting.

Starburst 4 QAL

The quilt consists of 4 of these starbursts, as you can see they are pretty big!

I finished the quilt top and this week managed to find something to back it with.

This afternoon I basted  it, it’s approx 94″ square:

We don’t have floor space large enough to lay it all out for basting, yesterday I did a bit of research and came across this useful blog post on basting a large quilt – thanks Julie, it worked (I think)

Now I need to work out what pattern to quilt it with and how on earth I’m going to do it.  Any suggestions welcome, I’m currently thinking about circles, which is what I did on this quilt last year, but this time I’m thinking of more than just one circle.  I’m no expert at free motion quilting actually I’ve never FMQ’d a quilt and this quilt is not the one to start on!  What do you think?
