Medallion QAL

Here's my center for the Gwennie Inspired Medallion QAL started by Lori of Humble Quilts.  You can read about it here .

The theme for the first month was baskets.  I've been super busy with company, family and special events. Throw in a few bout of sickness and my sewing time has been very limited, but I so want to do this QAL.  Soo... for this month I very loosely interpreted Gwen's liberating quilting and chose to do broderie perse  for my basket.  It just doesn't have a handle.  I hope Gwen would approve that I used what I had (an old tablecloth) and a pair of scissors, some steam-a-seam, and a 12 1/2" square to make my center. Do go over to Lori's to see all the centers that have been revealed today. Next month's theme is childhood.  I already have an idea - hope I can execute it more "Marston" this time.

Your use of the blue and white fabric is very nice. Such a pretty block.
What a great idea ; it's very pretty! :)

I'm sure Gwen would approve! Great idea to repurpose the tablecloth. Many a medallion quilt began with a chintz or broderie perse center back in the day.

Sweet basket, this will be a fun QAL.

I like your basket! I was tempted by this one, too, but I was very firm with myself! I'll enjoy watching you progress instead. No more bouts of sickness, ya hear me?
This QAL looks perfect for you. Stay well.
So sweet! I love it.

Gwen would surely approve! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does for the childhood round -- so many options.

What a pretty basket! Love you idea of using the tablecloth. It will be fun to watch you develop this into a medallion as the QAL goes on.

Your basket is beautiful. I've never tried broderie perse but I like the idea that you used it for this block. It's hard when we have other commitments that prevent us from sewing and quilting, isn't it? It's good you were able to create this block and participate. I'm looking forward to seeing your first border.

Beautiful center for your quilt!
Hi Angie, having a hard time remembering your email. I have ordered Gwen's book and thinking about playing the catchup game on this one. How long will it go on?
