I got Ashley's (from Wasn't Quilt in a Day) quilt starter first, with some very specific instructions/wants:
|Make a medallion quilt using these colors, she said. Measured about 17"x17".|
Luckily I got it right as I was finishing my daughter's birthday dress, so I had an immediate opening on my sewing table. The first thing I did was set the block on point:
Then I added a simple border to help frame it all:
|Now it measures about 28" square.|
And that is where I probably should have stopped. But the rules for how much to add to each person's quilt are pretty unrestrive and I really wanted to add another border. So I added a small plus border:
|Now it measures 39" square.|
|I did a lot of fussy cutting for the neutrals.|
And now I am DONE. Just need to make a signature block and I am putting it in the mail before I add another border. This quilt is just so pretty and fun to work on! It makes me want to start my own medallion quilt right.now. I have one planned for later this year at least!
Can't wait to see what she does with it!
