Depends on the quilt but don't be afraid to "go outside the lines." Sometimes I just SID, sometimes I SID and then fill in every other one, sometimes I do a feather border, or even do a geometric design such as diamonds or squares. I try to use something from the middle of the quilt if I can or do a treatment that will compliment the quilt.

I saw this pattern for piano keys somewhere and used it in a quilt, worked very nice !

You can SID one, then stitch lines 1/4" or 1/2" apart on the next one, providing there are the right number of "keys" to make it work. It creates a bead board type of effect.
