Ready to quilt

Yesterday and this morning, I worked steadily on the many little circles on the 40" center medallion that I've been working on sporadically for a year.   It's from a pattern called Bittersweet Briar by Kim Diehl.  The background is shirting, which I love working with. 

Now I'm sandwiching this section and will begin quilting by machine later today.  I'm going to take it easy partly because it's hot and partly because I want to put quite a bit of quilting into it.  I have the log cabin blocks all made for a border, and then who knows?   It will be 64 inches square by then, so I may add a thin green border and call it finished.  Or...
