Medallion Quilt Finish

Marcelle Medallion Quilt

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

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!
