Medallions typically have borders framing out the center block giving a wonderful place to play with machine quilting rulers.

How do I choose the right quilting designs?
I think the #1 question new APQS longarm owners ask me during their free beginner class is, “How do you know what to quilt on a quilt?” I wish someone would create an app that automatically chose the best possible quilting design for a quilt top. Wouldn’t that be awesome??? Just snap a picture of the quilt top with your phone, answer a few simple questions in the app, and then out pops a quilting plan!
