I did get part one of my Marcelle Medallion (<-- link is to the Liberty Love Book flickr group) quilt done yesterday (well technically it was almost 1 this morning...but it was before I went to bed, so it's still yesterday). I am pretty sure I'm already in love with this quilt.
First up I sketched out and picked fabrics for the center medallion:
I am mostly using Comma by Zen Chic (and a few other from my stash that match) but as I tried to figure out the medallion yesterday, I decided to add some magenta (fuschia?) to the mix. And I'm loving it!
I got all of my templates ready for the medallion pieces using freezer paper:
And then I got to ironing, cutting and stitching. And voila:
I am in heaven with this block! This was my first time attempting y-seams, so I was a little unsure at first, but a quick google search and review of a few tutorials out there, I just went for it! And it worked!
And now I'm off to audition fabrics for Border 1, and to get binding on a quilt, and maybe a little paper piecing.
