summer medallion adventure
so as we begin….
I finally finished my first and second borders during the catch up week!
while doing these borders, I discovered a few tips I thought I would share….
press often!
use a bit of spray like flatter by soak or Mary Ellen’s best press
measure, measure…I usually don’t but for this project I have found it invaluable!!

border 3 is a simple strip…
so glad after all those triangles!!
border and posts are cut 1.75 inches

after a bit of debate….
here is my border all sewn on!

for border 4, I am planning on using these fabrics…
this next border is flying geese…

I am planning on doing magic corners on a rectangle…
I know Sally using a different method…
click here for the tutorial….
we also talked size…the book calls for them to be 2 x 3.75
but since I did a different triangle method, and I am a bit tired of small pieces!!

I am going to make mine 2×4 finished…I will probably need a coping strip, but I am okay with that….
to see more pictures on this project, be sure to join the open facebook group!

    Love that plus pattern fabric hiding in the back. Your medallion is looking good!

    Looking good. I like the blue border you’ve added, it looks quite heavy compared to the other parts and I think it will hold the piece together. I just noticed your rotary cutter too. How nice is that!!

    I like the dark fabric with white crosses

    I like how it’s coming so far! I think the larger flying geese will look good too.

    Your giveaway is loaded with my kind of colors. The blue polka dot is just what I need to finish a project!

    You’ve inspired me! For years I’ve procrastinated….no more! I plan to start a medallion quilt this weekend! Your’s is delightful and the colors are just perfect so joyful! Pulling my scrappy fabric bin out now! Thanks for the creative push! 🙂

    Your blocks are great. They look like so much work…maybe I’m just being lazy. 🙂 But I do want to try my hand at some paperpieced hexies, and these fabrics would be perfect for that!!! Thanks so much.

    Your medallion is beautiful!

    The borders really frame the center! I love piece work made only with patterned fabric but I’m not confident in doing it. I really like seeing you put this together.

  17. Sarah J. July 16, 2014 at 8:57 pm #

    I wasn’t into the medallion craze, but watching yours come together is really fun (and makes me want to put it on my to-do list!). But wow, some of those pieces are small! Can’t wait to see more!!

    Your quilt is so colorful and bright! You are putting lots of work and love into it.
