Was able to wrap this up on New Year's Eve. Used Thermore batting and Omni black thread on the top; A&E Dyed Natural thread on the back. Added just a bit of fabric top and bottom on the backing that looks like old plank wood flooring and got it centered pretty well even though quilted on my longarm. Ditched the seams around the open black areas and did motif quilting in the printed triangles. In the all black triangles did 1/2" to the ditch and then filled in the centers. Diamonds got a little different treatment than the triangles, but similar.
