Quilting Opinions Needed Badly!

Help!  I quilted one square of the Star Wars quilt and I am just not sure!  I figure it will be a lot easier to unpick this tomorrow as opposed to unpicking a lot more.

So what do you think?  Yes?  No?  Yes but darker thread?  Different quilting all together?  I came up with this plan a couple of weeks ago while I was still putting it together.  The checkerboard part will have cross hatching and all of the larger blocks will be quilted like this.

If no can you make a suggestion?  If this doesn't work I haven't got a clue what I'll do.  I like it, but I'm not sure if that is because it is my plan and it lived in my brain for a couple of weeks.  I ask because my daughter looked at it and said "What do you think?"  When I said I thought it was good she said "It's fine."  She is so much like me and doesn't like to say negative things that might hurt someone's feelings that I'm not sure if she really thinks it is fine or not! :-D

So, I seriously want your honest opinions.  Thank you in advance!

I like the idea of the cross hatching, and with that, I think your quilting will be great.

I think it looks fabulous. Once you have all the quilting done all your doubts will disappear.

I think all together it will look good but you could also ask your daughter for a suggestion on what she thinks would look good.

I like it. You could always do the next block with the darker thread and see which one you like best. Either way, you pick out just one block. :)))

I agree with Pen Pen, try it darker only pick one...or you might like alternating colors? I think the quilting itself is lovely :-)

I agree with PenPen. Since you would probably have to pick anyway go ahead and do one in darker thread and see which you like best

If you want to be truly geeky...use dark thread on the evil characters / objects and light thread on the good guys / objects.......alternate them across the quilt. Dark side vs. light side.....OH and my favorite dark side fan quote is "Come to the Dark Side.....we have cookies"
