My medallion quilt will be mainly green and white with a splash of pink here and there :)
[I LOVE that color combination!!!]
First I trimmed my monogram to be 11" square.
[Kona White for the background]
A texty pink plays nicely as my first 1" border.
For my final border for the center I used my
favorite fabric of ALL TIME!!!
Several years ago I fell in love with a bedding set at Pottery Barn. I LOVE toile and pink and green. It was a match made in heaven. I bought the duvet and sheet set. My world was complete :)
At some point during the past year of manic quilt making, I decided I really needed a new bed spread, so I started to collect green and white fabric to make myself a quilt.
[As you may remember, I jumped on the IG #scrappytripalong bandwagon and made me a king sized one of those for my bed blogged HERE)]
Wait, I've gotten off track. Well, the duvet that I LOVE could not just be tossed to the side? NO!!! It will be perfect for something but what? Heck, it's the perfect size for a quilt back, if nothing else!
WELL, GUESS WHAT??? Since I have this Medallion Challenge AND a huge stack of green and white fabric AND a whole wonderful duvet made with the most perfect fabric, I decided to marry them all into my Modern Quilt Group Medallion Quilt
FOR MY BED :)
[As it turns out, it's alright to have two (or seven)
quilts for ones own bed ;)]
By using the old duvet for my new quilt I am tapping into the most basic and pure form of quilt making. My quilting ancestors are smiling down on me :)
PS- Did I already tell you that each border on my medallion quilt is going to represent a member of my family? Pretty slick, eh?
