If you prefer to handquilt, there are tutorials with good pictures located here and here.
Heather Bailey's beautiful site has lots of inspiring eye-candy, and also a great tutorial on how to bind your quilt.
Here are some great ideas from flickr:

Machine quilting runs perpendicular to the strips in this quilt. What could be simpler or more charming?
This one is a little different, with applique. It has a nice vintage feel to it.
