Simple voile patchwork

I’ve been dreaming of making an all voile quilt for a while now, especially since I have been sitting on a stack of gorgeous Anna Maria Horner voile. For the longest time I mulled over what would be the best pattern for this quilt, and it occurred to me last weekend– with fabric this gorgeous, I want to just highlight the prints and colors, and a simple patchwork would be best.

As soon as I decided on this, I got to ironing and cutting my fabric, and within a couple of days I had this pulled together!

Now the big questions are– should I back it with voile, or with flannel? All voile front and back would be so luxurious, though the flannel/voile combo is soft and cozy! Also, hand quilt or machine quilt?? I love the idea of using perle cotton in different colors and using running stitches along the length of the quilt, though machine quilting would be so sturdy and fast.
