Fluffy Sheep Quilting decided to hop on the bandwagon that the Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland got rolling and well, I am in too! They are going to be making a Modern Medallion as a quiltalong using the tutorials over at the Catbird Quilt Studio! How fun it that going to be?
I have always wanted to do a medalian quilt, but need things like this spoon fed to me, I found this out the hard way when I tried to copy a medallian quilt that I saw in a magazine (that was in a museum--picture above is similar to teh one I saw). I had only recently started quilting again and thought I could "figure it out" bought the fabric and everything. Drafted a few different things and realized I like to follow someone else's pattern. Anyone else's really! So eventually I repurposed the fabric though I still have the center part of the medallian which was a panel--it reminds me that I wanted a medallian daily! It usually hangs out on the design wall or the railing, just waiting for me to do something with it!
Of course, now that I have seen modern medallians I have something completely different in mind! I did a google picture search for "Modern Medallian" and found all kinds of cool stuff....not the least of which was this book which (gasp) I don't own!
