My quilting was very simple - I started with one wavy line that I freehand machine stitched and then echo quilted it to cover the whole runner in a lengthwise direction.
I find I like to use curvy quilting lines when the block design is linear. It just seems to make the overall look more whimsical.
The binding is a seasonal print (that is hard to photograph!) - pine branches on a rich red background. For the backing I tend to use plain pieces of fabric, but I think I'm about to change that after seeing some inspiring pieced quilt backs over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Hmmmm... I still have some red strips left, maybe I could satisfy my desire for more red along with my curiosity to attempt a pieced back... stay tuned.... ;o)
