Gallery Updates

Yesterday Jim asked me how many medallion quilts I’ve made. Since mid-2013, most of my quilts have been medallions. I made several more before that, as well, and I’ve been in a handful of round robins. I don’t have an exact count, but the total is somewhere north of three dozen. Sometimes I surprise myself. 🙂

With that, I decided it was time to update my galleries. In particular, I created a gallery combining the non-medallions of 2012-2014. (I like strip quilts, too, as you’ll see if you look.) In addition, I added this year’s medallions to the medallions gallery. If you’re interested, you’re very welcome to take a look.

And I’m indulging myself by showing this quilt again. It will long be a favorite, I think.

    It’s interesting to see these all in one place! And interesting to see how sedate your colors are in the non-medallion quilts, compared to the medallions. Has that been a conscious direction?

      Lately I’ve been using brighter colors generally, so I think that’s natural given the emphasis on the medallions lately. Thanks for taking a look.

      Yes, I always go to stash first, and then fill in with new purchases as needed. Of course, sometimes I add to stash, buying with a particular project idea. But likely as not it won’t be used the way I envisioned.

      THANKS.
