A New Month..

Yikes! I sure don't know where the summer went... it seems almost impossible that September is here.. 
September 1st is the reveal for round four of the Gwennie Inspired Medallion Quilt Along. At this point my top measures 49.5" square. I believe round five will be the final round and I'm excited to learn what the "theme" will be.

Humble Quilts

As I mentioned in my previous post, I appliqued down the orange flange between rounds three and four, added a round of Maverick Stars, and went back to round three to add some hexies. I've been using lots of (for me) "out of the box" colors: orange, pink and purple. And surprisingly, I like it! 

I don't think I've shown my "How Does Your Garden Grow" top since I finished the applique. I'm nominating it for my September UFO/OMG quilt. I have lots of quilting ideas from the long arm quilt group that I belong to, and I'm pretty excited to get started on it!

  6. Your medallion quilt uses a lot of colors and tones I don't use often, too, but I really like it. It has a very happy, free feeling to it. Such nice attention to detail, too.
    Can't wait to see how you quilt "How Does Your Garden Grow?" I would be stumped on that one. : )

  25. My favorite part of your medallion quilt is the applique center. Your star round picks up on all the colors used for the applique. And I took note right away that you are using lots of blue (must be your favorite color).
    Love, love your garden quilt. Especially the pots of sunflowers.
