Mini Medallion [a finish]

The Mini Medallion, which I pieced at the start of summer is now DONE! The pattern is by Corey Yoder and was shared on Sew Mama Sew during May.

I got totally hung up on the quilting. I wasn't keen on the straight line quilting of the original quilt but couldn't think of anything I liked better. After much deliberation I decided to quilt it with a spiral. Unlike previous spiral quilting attempts I've spray basted this quilt.... it wasn't all hunky dory - I had some serious issues with the machine skipping stitches, but I didn't have as much issue with the fabric moving and there are no puckers on the back of this quilt

The binding was sat for months, neatly made and wound up so it's nice to finally be attaching it - no more chances to lose it! I couldn't believe how much the yellow binding changed the look of the whole quilt!

The fabrics are Architextures and Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander, Minimalista, Modernology and Urban Mod Pointelle by Art Gallery, Waterfront Park by Violet Craft, Bike Path by Alison Glass, Pearl Bracelets, Kona Solid Lemon, Tula Pink Saltwater and the background is Kona White. It finishes at 25" x 25" and is backed in a turquoise spot. The binding is a mix of all the yellows I used in the quilt.

This is another finished for the Q3 Finish Along - you can find my original list here!

Lovely! I've never spray basted. I am going to try that in my next project, I think!
