Mini Medallion

Another medallion quilt has been on my to do list for quite some time now. Although my first medallion quilt wasn't a great experience (one of the borders didn't fit and I'd run out of fabric to re-cut leading to a bit of a hash job) I really wanted to try again. About a month ago Sew Mama Sew announced two spring sew-alongs, one being the Mini Medallion quilt. At only 25" x 25" finished and coming just after my successful Cheerio Mini Quilt, I pulled some fabric together.

These colours are a bit outside of my comfort zone: turquoise, navy, coral and yellow - my next quilt will definitely have green in it!

It's taken a while to put the quilt together, a border as often as possible, in between other projects - I seem to be juggling a fair bit at the moment - it's great!

80 HST in this border.... that was quite the pressing and trimming session...

...and I really struggle to get these square in a square blocks accurate unless I foundation piece - but I didn't. Luckily I managed to fudge it and you can't really tell. Or you won't be able to once I've quilted it.

Speaking of quilting... I'm still waiting for inspiration to strike. But I do have a lovely turquoise spot fabric to back it.

I'd love it if you'd pop back tomorrow when I'll be sharing two brand new finishes as part of the Blogger's Quilt Festival - just as soon as both of the quilts are actually finished... bit more binding to go.
