Marcelle Medallion Quilt Top


I finally finished my Marcelle Medallion quilt top, and I’m so glad I did!  Full of happy colors and fabrics I love, it’s now ready for basting.


One of the things I liked most about the pattern was the plus border surrounded by lots of low volume fabrics – especially text prints.  I really enjoyed piecing it and the results do not disappoint.


I had something else to use for a backing but decided instead to piece a large scrappy log cabin block.  Simple but fun.


I’m hoping to baste it today if I can get through my very long to-do list quickly enough.  Finishing a quilt is on my list of things to do before my birthday so I need to get rolling on it!


Have a great day!

Marcelle Medallion progress


I finally got my Liberty Love book back out and got working on my Marcelle Medallion quilt top.  It hung for too long without me touching it, and I’m so happy to be working on it again!


Borders 4-6 are now finished, and as I suspected, none of them took long to complete.  Isn’t it funny how many things we don’t start because in our heads it will take too long?


I like the Field Study poppies print for border number 6, and the citron as corner posts makes me smile.  Actually, the whole thing is making me smile.  Lots of color, and it sure feels good to be working on it again.


Only two more borders to go!
