Yes, I just finished quilting my 200th Community Quilt!
This was a big quilt, so to stabilise it I stitched in the ditch around all the coloured strips. I then echo stitched about a half inch inside the coloured strips using a variegated pastel thread.
And I finished off the centres of each block with a free-motion (i.e. no rulers) square spirals.
