What Do I Do in the Mountains?

I've been working on this quilt for my dad on and off for a couple years now. I started almost two years ago as a mystery project I lead at our guild's retreat and finally got the top done last fall. I've registered it in our guild's spring show so now I must get it finished. The gold fabric is a print of Gingko leaves, one of Dad's favorite photo subjects.

This is my first attempt at feathers and have decided to put them in the green areas and have decided to use this overlapping circle design as filler around the feather.

Now I just need help with how to quilt the gold or "mountain" areas. Any suggestions?

I would do some sort of grid work. Diane Gaudynski says if you want your quilting to show on patterned fabric then a grid works best.

No suggestions on what to do but it sure looks pretty. If your dad doesn't want it give me a call It'll go well with my Moss decor.
