I have been quilting though. This is another medallion of Carol's. Unlike the first one, she did all of this herself and it makes a real difference. The other was well-made and lay flat, but some of the color and design choices had me scratching my head. This one is much more cohesive and pleasing. I still spent quite a lot of time choosing thread colors and designs. While waiting on that, I stabilized the whole quilt by stitching in the ditch between every border.
Now I'm working my way back through the quilt and adding the quilting designs to each border and the center block.
