Simple Medallion Quilt in Fat Quarterly
So I'm a bit late posting this, but I'm very excited to tell you that I have a quilt featuring in the latest issue of Fat Quarterly which has a traditional modern theme. I absolutely love taking a traditional block and using modern fabric to make something beautiful.
For a long time I've wanted to make a Medallion quilt, and decided that a simple medallion style quilt that was quick and easy to make would be perfect. I love the Bearpaw block and based the quilt on it, using some supersize bearpaws and simple piecing.
Art Gallery Fabrics kindly sent me some of their gorgeous Carnaby Street fabric and it makes the softest most strokable quilt ever!
The latest edition of Fat Quarterly is packed with some gorgeous projects and I can't wait to try out some of the beautiful patterns. You can buy a copy here if you're interested too :)

This is very lovely Fiona - I had already admired it in my copy of Fat Quarterly! Will it be making the trip to FQR this year or will your suitcase already be full of other stitchy stuff?!ReplyDelete
