Thin masking tape (1/4 inch thick) to thicker tape (1 inch thick) can be applied to your top temporarily to be used as a guide for quilting stitches.  Make sure you use the tape as a temporary guide as  a sticky residue may stain the top if the tape is left on for a long period of time.

Masking tape also comes in handy when getting your quilt ready for basting. I use this tape to secure the edges of the backing to my table.
