|Oh how I love thee!|
Well, thing is I don't have one. What I do have is a long-held wish to have a medallion quilt, which started long before even the fabulous Marcelle Medallion and Sarah Fielke Medallion phenomena of recent months. So, a medallion quilt it is!
I don't have a pattern in mind, just going to make a start (yes, another one) and see where it takes me. No doubt it shall take me by way of some fiddly maths, but that's all part of my challenge!
As my centre block, I used Little Miss Shabby's Super-sized Morning Star instructions.
Everything was going swimmingly until
I didn't read the instruction that said "orient as illustrated" for those central flying geese blocks up there - doh!
So, instead of a starflower where the fabric points of the stars matched with each other, I inadvertently switched them around. I huffed and I puffed and I sighed and I reached reluctantly for the seam ripper. And, then I thought "I've seen that star before" and headed to the bookshelf to check.
And, what do you know, I have seen it before and it's got my name on it! See? "Sarah's Choice."
It seemed churlish to take a seam ripper to those points when this block kind of chose me so I left well alone and finished stitching her up. So I now have a medallion beginning - woohoo!!!
Who knows what borders I'll add next - stripes with cornerstones, checkerboards, hsts (aaagh), pinwheels, stars or crosses? Blimey, the choices are so exciting. I'm looking forward to letting this one grow as I go!
