I totally spaced on Lori's Liberated Medallion Quilt Along (see it here on her blog Humble Quilts). When I saw her post yesterday, I remember that I wanted to do this too!
Lori started out the Medallion by giving us the prompt "Basket" for our center block. And then I saw all the wonderful baskets popping up in Blogland!
So, after I emailed Lori and got permission to play along, I went and found my basket block that is already done.
|my baskets as of March 2015|
And then I found one more (in the bottom left in the picture of all the baskets) It doesn't match very well either - all the others have a more pastel background.
So, I have choices. I haven't decided quite where I'm going with this, and options are good.
|The print fabric is a vintage late '60's/early '70's one.|
Here are my possible fabric choices to go with Basket #1. I think I need to add in some of the gold/mustard for some spice! Oooo, shopping!
This is gonna be fun! I love a liberated quilt and a good QAL too! And I just had the Medallion class with Gwen this spring to get me started thinking medallions!
The next border's prompt is "Childhood" and I already have some ideas in my head. Now if it would just cool down enough that I can go upstairs and play in the quilt studio.
