Help with quilting designs?

Here’s where I am with the quilting on the UFO Dresden Plate quilt (click for a bigger pic!):

Dresden Plate quilt sashing

I’m almost done with the feather quilting around the plates, and I’m ready to start on either the sashing or the stippling between the plates and the feathers. In the planning stages, I thought I’d quilt a small diagonal grid in the sashing, to echo the larger grid that’s in another part of the quilt, but now I’m not so sure I’m happy with the way it looks. Too much thread on the quilt, I think, and I can’t figure out what to do with the green cornerstones either, not to mention how long it’s going to take. I’ve only done the one piece of sashing this way, so I can still do the frog stitch and try something else, but the question is, what do I do?

Anybody have any ideas for a design for the sashing? It measures 2″ wide and the longest piece is 14″ (they vary since there are half blocks and those sashing pieces are 2″ x 7″). HELP!
