I recently quilted this quilt and I could not help but notice that from top to bottom the straight line stitches I was making were in almost perfect alignment with the quilter's seams.  That is no accident.  This is exactly why longarm quilters stress the need for quilts to be sewn straight and square.  If you choose a quilt pattern that has straight lines and your seams are not straight and square the stitches will cross over the seam lines at an angle and it will be very noticeable.  Therefore, if you know your seam lines are not straight and square I would not recommend choosing a quilt pattern with lots of straight lines that would be parallel to the seams.  A close-up of a section of the quilt I am referencing is shown below.
