I Know I Shouldn’t Have BUT…..

 

I was checking out my friend Linda’s blog and came across her Friendship Medallion Quilt. This is a free pattern put out by the Australian quilt shop, The Patchwork Pumpkin.

They are offering the medallion quilt pattern,  with a few strings attached. They are:

1. You are not allowed to purchase any fabrics for the quilt top. You must use your stash!

2. You may swap fabrics with your friends.

3. Show us your quilt centre to get the next border instructions. No proof? No pattern. No exceptions!

Now, knowing I have so much OLDER fabric I would love to use up, I decided to venture forth…nothing ventured, nothing gained – except maybe another UFO or WIP.Smile

I think I’ll be making this out of a mixture of old and new, Country and Bright. I’m sure it’ll all go together O.K.

Now to get the second part

Thanks for dropping by

This sounds tempting, I've just been sorting through my scrap box making strips and squares, could be a good way to utilise it, although I really, really, don't need to start another quilt... on the other hand I would be using up my stash which is a good thing.

What a pretty start, Sue! That center is just smashing, and the orange wavy-lined border is perfect - it really pops. This is a good looking start and I can assure you that traditional-modern, or country-bright as you say, works. I'm so glad you joined us: Kerry of http://alittlestitching.blogspot.com/ and me... and I'm sure there are many others I haven't come across yet.
