This quilt picture is from The War of 1812 Blog. I originally saw a picture of this quilt (or one quite similar to it) in a magazine and have always wanted to make a medallion quilt. Several years ago, while still in Wisconsin, I bought a reproduction Hewson Center and struggled with trying to replicate it from the start! At the time the lemonye stars were absolutely undoable for me! This quilt is in the collection of the American Folk Art Musuem and I think it is exquisite! I still have the center and may try my hand at making a medallion with it one day now that I have tried the Modern Medallion and have had such good luck with it!
I have not made any more progress on my modern medallion. I started sewing a few smaller paper pieced stars for possible corners, but so far am not loving them. I cannot decide between another solid border (if so what color) or a pieced border of the various fabrics. Funny, up til now it all came easier than I thought and I love it. Now I keep thinking maybe I should stop before I ruin it! Advice? Do tell me what you think I should do because I am apparently STUCK!
Linking up with MQG Ireland so you can see what the other folks are up to with their modern medallions!
