Busy, But I like It!

I’m making two medallion tops for the class I’m teaching. The class has five sessions, and Thursday is the final one. My goal is to have both tops done. And there’s another medallion top I started last fall that’s been languishing in a project drawer for too long. I’ve made a little progress on it, too. If miracles happen, it might be done Thursday, too!

Here’s the first top finish.

Finished top, not quilted. 63″ square.

I’ll finish it with a double-pink binding, to create the same narrow dark pink line as used a number of times.

Once it’s done, I’ll do a run-down of my process and analysis of how well it worked. For right now I’ll just say, it’s busy but I like it!

    Very nice, but now how I imagined the flying geese would be arranged. I like the candy stripe border a lot, too, especially the light blue paired with the blue and pink bird print.

        Not how I planned, either! I had figured to have the geese chase around. But they were too dull and too tightly packed. I needed to open it up a little, and I’m happy with how that worked.

        And yes the candy stripes — really glad I used the light blue. It makes me smile. 🙂

    Once again thanks for mixing up your blue and tan fabrics in the outer border. I think it adds depth and interest, and I’m sure it helps use up those little scraps.

      I do think scrap quilts often are more interesting, but they aren’t always the right thing. Here they are, in my opinion. One thing I wanted was a “formal” style but not a formal feel. This is fussy but friendly to me, like the old woman down the street. 🙂

      Thanks for taking a look and commenting.
