Quilting the Quilt

So I need some advise here.  I have this quilt top ready to be turned into a full-fledged toddler size quilt and I am stuck.  I cannot decide on the best way to actually “quilt” it.  I can easily rule out free motion quilting as my sewing machine is a 1971 Sears Kenmore ZigZag 1320 model (I think) and I cannot easily get the foot that will allow me to do this.

I could go with diamonds, squares, vertical or horizontal lines but I just can’t seem to be able to decide.  I also want to know how others keep their layers together and prevent the backing from folding over on the occasional stitch.  I use safety pins to pin all layers and I have recently contemplated spray adhesive and spray tack for fabric.  Does anyone have any experience in using this?

I would love to hear your tips on the final stages of quilting.
