    Yes, in that case I knew it. The English quilt in my book has a beautiful border pattern, a big sea shell! I have already marked the first quarter on my quilt and started quilting yesterday.
    Sometimes I finish the center medaillon and I am still thinking about the patterns for the border or I change the original plans. It's not so hard to make the patterns fit. The center can be devided like a cake in 45, 60, 90 - pieces and the patterns have to fit there! For the borders I measure the length of my quilt and devide it into equal parts. The remaining rest is a lot of improvisation!

    No, the design develops while quilting. The first thing I do after basting is to mark the exact middle of the quilt, than I mark the vertical and the horizontal lines and as well the diagonals through the middle. I baste these lines with a thread, you can still see some of them on the pictures in blue, and they are my guidelines for the center medaillon.

    For this quilt I do again the needlemarking method, you can see it here:

    Sometimes I only mark single patterns, but the markings last quite long and I can do about a quarter of the quilt at a time.
