I am so excited about the project I am working on. You will remember the quilt I made for my Housekeeper Georgia’s grandson Vision, it is the header on my Blog now. Well, the other day after cleaning out some drawers, I found that I had a lot strips cut and some left over blocks from the same fabrics.
I thought I would just go ahead and make me a quilt with the Double Hour Glass blocks after I made more. Then I started thinking about making a Medallion Quilt using a large 18” Star. Using my EQ8 Software I drew the Star out and colored it with 4 blues. I printed out the large block to have as a pattern. I use Elenor Burns rulers for the Flying Geese because you get 4 at a time and I need 4 with Dark and 4 with Medium light blue! I love it! I am truly inspired now to develop this quilt as I go along, so it will be called My Surprise Quilt!
I started with the DHG blocks and as I made more I realized I wanted the blocks to be the last border on a quilt!
Then I realized I wanted to use them for a border on a Medallion Quilt!
The blocks and Medallion are on the Design Board and now I will sew the Medallion together and start audition blocks for the next border! Not sure what the size of the quilt will be, but I know that I am really REALLY enjoying this project!
UPDATE – UPDATE! The Medallion went together perfectly! YEA. Now on to the next border – another surprise!
So for now, have a great week-end and see all on Slow Sunday Stitching!
