It’s that time of year again. The big kids are off playing at Quilt Market while the little kids stay home and take part in the virtual Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by the remarkable Amy. It’s always fun to see fabulous quilts made by people that are new to me as well as my old favourites 🙂 If you’re new here, hello, we hope you’ll find something that will make you want to come back again. If you’re a regular you’re welcome as always!
Apologies to regular readers who are probably sick to death of my Marcelle Medallion quilt but I just love it so decided to enter it into the Throw Quilt Category.
I couldn’t resist jumping on the band wagon earlier this year. This quilt pushed me right out of my comfort zone and saw me wander from the safety of using a whole fabric line from one designer. I absolutely love the end result and it’s fair to say that I’m a lot braver with my fabric choices now. Here’s an in progress shot so you can see some of the fabrics a bit more clearly. Many of my favourite designer’s are represented in this little lot.
I had fun hand quilting with a lime coloured perle 8 thread once I’d done some basic straight line quilting to stabilise the top and backing.
The finished quilt has been auditioned in various locations around the house; the landing,
on the bed…
and now resides on our bedroom wall.
I posted quite a lot during the making of this quilt so just search Marcelle Medallion in the search box at the top of the blog for more information if you’re interested.
There are loads of fabulous entries in the throw quilt category so don’t forget to check the others out! I’ll be back tomorrow with another entry. Happy weekend to you all. Catch you soon x
