My PMQG Medallion Quilt

PMQG 2014 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 ;]


  1. That looks awesome! I really love how bright and happy it is!

  2. Finishing a project always deserves applause. Finishing a project when you have a toddler deserves extra applause. It is beautiful!

  3. Wow this is stunning Michael Ann! I have minimal knowledge of quilting, but I can tell you spent a lot of time on this. And I'm with Sherry... way to finish this with a toddler in the house! :)
