Medallion Quilt - Finished!


I love that today I have a finished quilt to show off.  So often it is just a block, or a half done batch of softies (that will be tomorrow's post) but today, a whole quilt!


This quilt started over on Meredithe's blog, Pomegranate and Chintz, as a medallion quilt-along.
I had the medallion, and I had a layer cake to match so I signed on.


There is a Flickr group too, if you would like to see the other quilts under way.


I backed it in a plain grey.  I had a lot of grey and figured it would tie in with the darker grey I used as sashing between each round on the quilt.


I used a strip of the sashing fabric to join the back so it was big enough.
I used the same grey for the binding.  I did buy this grey for the project, but everything else was stash.


This marks my April finish for AJ's 12 WIP's in 2012 challenge too!

I think this is my best quilt that I have ever made, and it is even better because I designed each round and quilted it too.  I even quilted the centre medallion by hand just for fun.

  4. It's just so beautiful Becky! The yellow medallion in the middle, with the gold colours on the outside totally complement each other.
