In the past week I have been working hard to catch up on my Portland Modern Quilt Guild Medallion quilt. I was officially two borders behind… and now I am all caught up…
As an officer” of the Guild this year I was gently persuaded to take part in this Medallion along but really wish I had thought my colour scheme through a bit better. As my husband loudly stated last week “why on earth are you making a pastel quilt!” . I have been asking myself that question for a couple of months now!
Don’t get me wrong I am loving the process of making this quilt, I just wish I had thought about the fact I would have to live with pastels for months and months! But the process…oh I love the process. Each month another border is added and each month, where possible, I turn the border into a paper piecing pattern.
For this month’s border I made a triangle/flying geese paper pattern (which you can find here PMQG Medallion Border 4 pattern) and the corner-stone pattern as well (you can find that pattern here PMQG Medallion border 4 cornerstones)
If paper piecing does not float your boat but you like the borders, check out the PMQG Medallion site. My fellow officers have done a great job of explaining how to make the borders with traditional piecing. You will also find all the directions and measurements for our Medallion if you are interested in playing along.
As it is Wednesday I am of course linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
