I finished it! Let me introduce my version of the Marcelle Medallion from the book Liberty Love by Alexia Abegg. This was a lot of fun even if there were a lot of little pieces. I used a lot of scraps and some DS prints, some Flea Market Fancy, some Feedsack prints, some vintage prints from my Gramma and a whole bunch of low volume bits and pieces. I had the idea to use retro 1950s colours as I was thinking or arborite tables and kitchen colours from the 50s. Like these pictures from a 1950s copy of Better Homes and Gardens...
I quilted this fairly densely, using a variety of free motion things in Aurifil 50 wt in white.. Can you see the little tiny fans, next to the flying geese blocks on the left? I also did some straight line quilting on the outer borders. This was the first time that I did so many different things with the quilting. It is far from perfect but it was fun to try something different! I also addes some extra inches to the final border to make the quilt just a little bigger.
Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday! Yay!
