Something New

I started a new project.  I saw the pattern Picking Petals by Carried Away Quilting on Instagram and thought it would make a great center for a medallion quilt. 

The pattern is available here.

I changed it up a little.

I made my pieces bigger and added a few extra squares to that center block.

I'm going totally Bonnie & Camille scrappy.

After studying these books I've decided to add three additional borders.

This is the first border, two more to go!

I can't believe it's April 1st.  Where did winter go?!?!?  The good news, I promised myself I could get out my Vintage Tulip quilt today! Even though April showers bring May flowers, it's tulip time around here, outside and in!


  1. What a great start to a medallion quilt, especially with the changes you made. I've never made one, so I look forward to seeing yours develop.

  2. It'll be an amazing quilt when it's finished! Love the fabrics you use (big B&C fan here).

  3. Thelma, I'm thinking of you as a designer these days. You have so many good ideas that sparkle up your quilts. Please post a photo of your Vintage Tulip quilt while its out so we can view it in place. Stephani in N. TX (

  4. You are right :-) This makes a lovely medallion. Your fabric choices are fun and cheerful. This is looking beautiful!

  5. What a wonderful medallion! You are so clever making it your own.

    Looking forward to watching your progress on this beautiful quilt !

  6. As always, you inspire! This is will be a great medallion, with lots of fun colors.

  7. I can't wait to see your finished quilt! Love the fabrics you are using!

  8. I've been following along on IG--this quilt is really cute.


I try to respond to all my comments but sometimes I just don't get the job done. Please know that I am reading your comments and appreciate you taking the time to add a little of yourself to my blog.
