One of the guild projects at my guild this year is to have members make a medallion quilt. I have to admit when I heard this at first I groaned. Medallion quilts don’t do it for me for one and for another I wasn’t sure I wanted different people working on quilt for me with different skill sets, fabric choices , colour preferences and senses of style.
But then I heard more about this medallion quilt project. We were each to make our entire quilt. We’d make a centre and then every month we’d be given some choices for our next round. We were in complete control. The control freak part of me quite liked this. And going out of my comfort zone I thought wouldn’t be a bad thing. So I’ve decided to jump in and participate.
I’ve made my centre block and I’ve used my stash of Alison Glass Fabrics and a Northcott dark grey fabric and came up with this block:
The first round will be announced shortly. I can’t wait to find out what blocks I will be asked to use. I know it will both stress me out and challenge my creative skills.
