It is not very easy to photograph as it has ended up a whopping 99 inches square (223 cms).
I have hand pieced a lot of the quilt, except for sewing on the long borders. All of those I did on my sewing machine. I'm thinking I may do the same for quilting this beast...some machine quilting and the rest done using perle threads by hand.
The last border had a couple of additions. It was supposed to be one colour, however none of the fabrics I auditioned were working for me. I then sewed on the orange and yellow and liked it, but wasn't totally happy with it. Once I sewed on the last green border, I knew it was done!
The binding will finish it off nicely in the gorgeous black with pink polka dots seen here in the middle circle.
For those who haven't seen this pattern before it is called Museum Medallion and it is designed by Judy Newman (her design is based on an antique quilt hanging in a London museum). I just love it. It's been fun to add little fussy cut pieces to it...like this gorgeous little sparrow (can you see him?)....
Or these hearts cut from Keiko Goke fabrics, or the apples and strawberries!
So I think it's going to take me a couple of years to quilt it, but I will enjoy the process none-the-less!!! Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me and given me comments on this quilt, I have appreciated every single one!
