Giveaway is now closed – Jacklynn won! Thank you all for playing. I so enjoyed reading about your leisure activities while I finished my novel from the couch. It was a good week. 😉
I can remember clearly the moment I discovered my love of medallion quilts. I’ve never been a fan of sampler quilts, so to my surprise I fell hard for medallions. Of course, my discovery probably coincided slash was caused by the #marcellemedallion (by Alexia Marcelle Abegg) craze.
My realization came during my first venture into medallion making with my Lucky medallion, which I made using selvages from my favorite fabrics. I cannot tell you how much fun making medallions are! Lucky has long long been on my list to make into a quilt pattern – there are a few things I would do differently.
When Janice and Beth invited my to submit a sketch for their medallion book, I was thrilled. Here’s my sketch I submitted. Actually, the sketch I submitted was a bit different; Janice and Beth asked that I alter it a bit, which was the right call. Anyways, I even had fun making the sketch so I’ve been waiting to show it to you. 🙂
I really love blocks on point and probably my favorite thing to do with medallion quilts is to turn the center on point. I probably will always to do this, I love on point so!
The theme of this medallion was flowers: a center flower made from the pickle dish motif, orange peel flowers, and more flowers at the corners using a half of a pickle dish. Also there are flying geese made from HSTs, checkerboards, and herringbones. These are a few of my favorite things….
(Danielle brought it didn’t she?)
I’m honored to be a part of this wonderful book alongside so many talented quilt makers. I’d love it if you were to visit the other stops on the blog tour to read about the other contributors and see the quilts!
