My PMQG Medallion Quilt
Happy New Year my dearest friends!
It's been awhile ;]
This year is already off to a fabulous start
especially now that I have my first quilt of the year finished -
my medallion quilt from the Portland Modern Quilt Guild Medallion Along of 2014!
Each month of last year, the PMQG provided the pattern for a new round on the medallion.
Since I joined the guild part way through the year, I had a bit to make up for.
I wasn't able to finish it by the December deadline,
but since I was only one round away from finishing I had to keep going!
It feels so so good to have this crossed off my wip list now!
I had a lot of fun doing a scrappy take on this quilt,
with my color obsession from last year of aqua, yellow, and grey.
I also used a lot of low volume bits to give the white areas some extra texture.
I love how light, bright, and airy it looks.
Although that made it a lot harder than I was expecting to get a good photo!
It looks a lot brighter in real life...
It turned out to be the perfect size for the little guest bed we have in my sewing room,
which means I can admire all my hard work all the time, haha.
But seriously, I am pretty proud of this beast.
All of those rounds took a bit longer than I expected,
but I actually finished it!!
Now, onto the next one ;]
