Medallion Quilt Finish

Marcelle Medallion Quilt

It was a perfect Autumn day today down here in Southern Tasmania, Australia.

A perfect day for the beach…

My Marcelle Medallion Quilt has taken a while to finish (you can read more about this quilt in previous posts here and here)…

but I am so happy with this quilt and how it has turned out!

I kept the quilting quite simple…

mostly stitch in the ditch and straight line quilting.

I used grey Gutermann thread for the quilting and pieced together a back using some lovely soft Japanese Sevenberry fabric and a strip of orange Carolyn Friedlander botanics fabric. For the binding, I used a pale aqua Andover fabric which I think worked perfectly to finish off this bold quilt!

This project is my May finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

  1. The strangest thing just occurred. I just finished paging through my brand-new-off-the-truck book, ‘The Modern Medallion’, and saw this pattern in the front of the book. I click through your comment that just popped in, and there was the same quilt! (I should play the lottery today!)

    Your color work is really well done here, and I enjoy the variety of fabrics you’ve used. The backing is spot on! You have a lot to be proud of in this quilt. Congratulations, Deb.
