Lori and Randy's Medallion SAL

Top is a finish and ready for quilting!

Using a wool batting I can't wait to get started on the quilting this weekend. 
Thank you to Lori and Randy for a great quilt-along. 
Here is a link to Humble Quilts with a linky to see how other quilters did their medallion quilt and check out how Lori quilted her top!

My plan worked great! 
Basted on blank borders. Then laid out and glue basted all the pieces. 
The small leaves are fused and the stems are 'tubes'.
Removed the borders...
Did all the machine applique
 and then the borders were sewn back on. Stem ends went into the seams...
Lots of thread colors as well as four different buttonhole stitches and settings
 and of course a little fussy cutting 


  1. Your quilt is gorgeous, I love the little changes you made!

  2. I love how your quilt turned out. I didn't participate in this QAL, but have made some other ones with Lori. It is a lot of fun, but I was too busy with other projects this time. Yours is beautiful!

  3. A beautiful version of the medallion quilt.
    Love your fussy cutting! :)
    Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it.

  4. What a great way to assemble the borders!! Love the colors and especially the antique looking background. Thanks for adding your link!! It is beautiful!

  5. What a great finish, I know you are thrilled with it. Makes me wish I had joined in :).

  6. Spectacular quilt, I too love the fussy cutting. Also the blanket stitch on the applique. You really know how to get the most out of your fabrics. Also curious as to how you'll quilt it.

  7. What a great idea to remove the borders to do the applique, genius! It is beautiful!
