Medallion Quilt

 We've been using this quilt for extra warmth this winter. When it's freezing cold outside, and there's snow on the ground, yet the sun is shining through the window, it's lovely to sit up in bed and pretend that it's a  summer sun shining onto the summery colours of the quilt (you can even take a photo while you're there). Even on a dull day this quilt brings some summer into my day.

I recently made another quilt with colours that bring summer into the house all year round.

Can I win a prize for rubbish photo? Does Santa give a clue to when this was taken?
I made this medallion quilt for my parents for Christmas. I used the Flora range by Lauren and Jessi Jung along with a few other fabrics. The central panel is a "storm at sea" and I just decided on the rest of the borders as I went along. It's fairly densely quilted in a variety of free motion designs. As you can imagine, it was, at times, quite a struggle to wrestle it through my domestic machine. I forgot to take photo's of the quilting but will do so when I next go to their house.

Wow these Medallion quilts are just amazing. I love them both but I think I adore the summer version more, perhaps because I love summer :-) Have you seen the Marcelle Medallion quilt from the Liberty Love book that everyone is talking about. This quilt is very similar. So you are right on trend with your medallions at the moment!

So beautiful! It takes a lot to get all of the pieced borders to fit together well, I bet!

I love Lauren and Jessie Jung's flora line and it looks spectacular in the quilt you made! I'd love to see the quilting and admire that you did it all on your home machine. Wow!

Thanks for linking up!
