You may remember my House stitchery....for some time now i have wanted to design a Medallion quilt, so this stitchery was my starting point. I have seen many Medallion quilts which i just love and i did a bit of research and found that they originally started with a square (on point) and then borders were added to show the quilters skill.....ive probably broken every Medallion rule, but heres part of my version:
These r the corner blocks, which i agonized over but im sticking with them lol.......so then it was off to the fun part........the borders!!!! ok so bare with me on this, i might change my mind:
I just love Flying Geese, so of course they had to be in there somewhere, why not the first border??? I plan on another 2 major borders at this stage so i will post as it progresses. Its been fun to sew so far and i want it to be quite busy and scrappy and then u can just use up whats in the "stash".......its just a matter of getting those measurements right (and we all know how good my math is lol)...........so far so good (ok i confess, i had a total math meltdown with the first pinwheel but i fixed it lol)
Stay tuned for the next border.......it could be awhile cause i got Maddi's Birthday Quilt to be finished before next Wednesday..........but i think so far, so much fun!!!!
