Teacher quilt top is done!!!

Wow, I thought I sewed fast, but not on this one. This is a kit I bought at the Honey Bee Quilt Store during the shop hop. I bought it because DD's teacher loves pink and green. I was having issues with the pinks and greens I had in my stash. I had some, but didn't like what I had to put together. So, when I saw this one, I just had to get it for her. I always dislike buying kits because you are NEVER sure if you have the right amount of fabrics or not. But, I have to compliment this shop on the generous amount of fabrics needed to make this quilt. I have some leftover, and might just make the teacher a purse. ???

I did find the backing fabric, so now my task is to put the backing together and get the quilt on the long arm quilted and this one loaded and quilted. What pattern should I use to quilt it? Ideas?

This is really pretty - lucky teacher!!
I think something with curves for the quilting, maybe swirls or I've seen some LA templates for large flower shapes with leaves which would be pretty :)
