Jumping on the band wagon.

This is one band wagon that I just could not resist! I’ve seen lots of Marcelle Medallions popping up all over the internet and so I bought myself a copy of Liberty Love by Alexia Abegg for Mother’s Day so that I could join in. I am determined to fight my usual safe mode of sticking to one collection per project for this one. It’s going well so far!

So far I’ve included fabrics from 6 different designers in the central medallion. I’m going to try to keep count as I go along 🙂 That’s Patty Young, Melody Miller, Saffron Craig, Sweetwater, Sandi Henderson and Helen Dardik (I think…correct me if I’m wrong, it’s the dot fabric).

The central medallion went together really quickly and I managed to get the first border on too. That’s 2 more designers there…Pat Bravo and ???( not sure on the black and white fabric).
I’m very motivated to get this top finished after seeing Mandy’s finished Marcelle Medallion in real life at Lynne‘s last week!! In other news, I attended the inaugral meeting of the East Midlands Modern Quilt Guild on Saturday thanks to Kerry. It was lovely to meet more mad sewing ladies in person, including Di, the HipBees Queen Bee!! Any lovely readers from the East Midlands area that fancy popping along to join in with other like-minded people can find out details in the flickr group. Hope you’ve all had a good weekend. Catch you soon x

    Wow – this is very striking and you are working really well out of many fabric lines rather than playing it safe. You should live dangerously more often. Have fun with the rest!

    Looking forward to seeing this all finished! I'm surprised the centre is quick to make up with it being templates, but that's encouraging as I will be making one into a cushion soon!
