Medallion for Mackie and Jesse

Back Home!

After spending almost 3 weeks in California and Arizona, it's back to the deep freeze and lots of snow. 
Oh well, more time for quilting and playing with artsy stuff!

Medallion for Mackie and Jesse

Quilts for Christmas

My personal quilting challenge for 2014 was to make a quilt for each one of my six grandchildren.

“Medallion” was made for my grandson Mackie and Jesse, who recently moved into their new home. I found out that the decorating was heading towards a neutral palette with touches of copper.

I made this Medallion top a few years ago when teaching classes from my own original design.

The colour scheme was just right, so I took it to Marnie, for long arm quilting.  The back is extra wide flannel, the binding is a solid black cotton.

Here's a few close-up shots:

All I needed to do was square it up, add the binding and a label.

This quilt measure 76” x 92”

I have made a total of four of these medallion. You can see the others:

Happy Quilting,
