The Simple Medallion Quilt is the perfect weekend project. Choose four fabrics and a background and get sewing! The finished size is 65 1/2" x 65 1/2" (159cm x 159cm) which is such a versatile size. Great on a bed or perfect on the couch as a lap quilt. It would work in any fabric or colour combination. The strips are wide enough to work with a bigger scale print, or use small prints or solids. It would also make the perfect gift for any occasion.
This quilt top started as a quick sketch on some graph paper and a stack of pretty Art Gallery Fabric Solids. I worked on a block at a time and didn't put them all together until this weekend. I love it when a little idea comes out even better then you hoped it might.
I'm really enjoying having a slow stitching project on the go. I started this one in March after playing around with some simple collage ideas. I did not plan ahead and cut out each block as I went.
It was quite relaxing to know that I didn't need to have an idea of the finished quilt before I started it. After I made 12 blocks I sewed them together and hand quilted with two strands of DMC embroidery thread.
I've already started a new slow stitching project and I'm excited to see what it becomes.
