I love medallion quilts!

I really love all of the beautiful medallion quilts that have been on blogs lately.  They seem so intimidating, but I wanted to make one myself.  I had the perfect pattern, but none of my fabrics included enough yardage to make it all match, so........


I gathered together a bunch of coordinating colors and patterns and got started.  I actually started this quilt top on the last retreat I went to in June.


I really do love chain piecing!



The pieces in the top were quite large, so it went together quickly!



The center medallion measured 45x45!  I told you the pieces were large.


This is a king sized bed, so all I would do is widen the two inner borders to make it fit properly.

Now she is off to NFQ to be quilted.  I wonder how they will quilt this lovely flimsy?

Vicki--this is so terrific! I once had a medallion hankering in my heart, and I still love the quilt I made then. Your medallion turned out so lovely!

She certainly is a great big beauty! Such lovely fabrics and colours. I have only made one medallion quilt - a doll quilt. Quite on the other end of the size spectrum!

Yours took the intimidation away though...whew! I remember loving this one before...but since this week I'm "studying" Medallion quilts I appreciate seeing the simplicity of this 45x45 center!
