I tried (and picked out) a couple of variations for quilting this round quilt. First I tried hand quilting in a blending color thread. It just looked so BLAH. Then I tried machine quilting about a 1/4" from the seams - and that just looked awful. So next I tried a decorative stitch-in-the-ditch with black thread. And now the colored lightning bolts just pop. Yay!!! This is all quilted and just needs some binding.
