Truly, this quilt was an obsession for me.
I've always been interested in medallion/border quilts, and this quilt pattern, from Alexia's Liberty Love book, was just what I needed after quiltcon.
I think part of the draw was the complete indulgence in scraps and little treasured pieces.
I also felt engaged in each section, and never went into auto-pilot mode, as you sometimes can on large projects.
And knowing I couldn't possibly give this one away, I used a large piece of two favorite prints for the back.
I also took some chances on the quilting, and knew I would still love it if it didn't work out just the way I wanted.
But it did.
I love this quilt, and I loved making it.
And I'll probably make another.
It's absolutely beautiful!!!!ReplyDelete

It's so gorgeous Jacey! Good job on the quilting, I still have no idea how I'm going to quilt mine. Isn't it nice to make a quilt for yourself every now and then? :)ReplyDelete

Those are some awesome pictures and an awesome backyard full of weeds:). It's beautiful, sister!ReplyDelete
So awesome Jacey! I love the sneaker pic.ReplyDelete
An aside...I just started working out again too. Are you still going to the MAC? I thought about you when I was there and about how there's no way I could FMQ after that arm and shoulder workout. Oy!
Beautiful! I can see how you savored the process along the way. That's the best kind of quilting!ReplyDelete
Awesome, Jacey! I wish I could see it in person. Can tell the quilting is really interesting. Enjoy a snuggle!ReplyDelete
It is so darned fantastic! I adore it and I can totally see why you'd make another :)ReplyDelete
It's so gorgeous. if you feel like making another, you can send it my way. *wink*ReplyDelete
Oh gosh, Jacey! This is gorgeous. I want to make another too! (Even though I'm still not done with my current one quite yet.)ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I know those projects, too, where you simply enjoy them and can't stop working on them. Where you enjoy every step and make a happy dance when it's finished. Where you can't stop looking at them and smiling. I'm happy to read that this was / is one of the projects for you.ReplyDelete
I still cannot decide on my starting fabric for this quilt because I'm too tired, too exhausted (because of my kids) and just don't have the brain for it, now. What also doesn't help is the fear of picking the wrong fabrics and regretting it later... 'Though when I see your pictures I feel a little inspired and excited to work on my medallion quilt... We'll see how it goes. Perhaps I should just jump in and see what will come my way.
This is just amazing! So glad you enjoyed it so!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous quilt! The quilting is so pretty. I love that binding!ReplyDelete
Just beautiful, Jacey!ReplyDelete
So so pretty! I can't see the quilting close up but it looks amazing! I also am loving that green fabric that lays beside the crosses. Very cool and it blends in well!ReplyDelete
Oh, Jacey, I can see why you love this one so much! And I'm amazed at how quickly you finished it (especially given how productive you've been on other projects this month). I'm always impressed by what you show on the blog but this one takes the cake- great pattern, colors, quilting, everything!ReplyDelete
Wow, it is absolutely beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow I love the colors! This pattern is so amazing, it is so cool to see what you've done with it! Just beautiful.ReplyDelete
