Last night I started a new quilt. I know, it's sort of crazy to start two quilts in two days, but I just could not help it. As soon as I saw Marcelle Medallion quilt in Alexia Marcelle Abegg's book Liberty Love, I knew this was the quilt for me.
I worked on this medallion last night. It took me hours to decide on fabric and cut out all the pieces. This quilt has templates, tons of them, and they are on that thin brown tissue paper and need to be traced, none of which are my favorite things to do, but I was determined to make it work.
Today I added this text border,
then the second (scrappy triangle) one - again tons of templates and tracing, but so well worth the effort.
I even managed to add this third white text print border. Phew! After that I totally needed a break and hope to work on my next border tomorrow - it's flying geese, wish me luck!
I can't leave without sharing a picture of our backyard. Can you believe it? We got 10" of snow today, schools were closed, and it would have been a perfect snow day, the only problem is we were really hoping for some spring, not winter again.
And here is my little boy all snuggled up, enjoying the no school day, watching Pokemon, making me very happy because I do love seeing my children using the quilts and pillows I made.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Svetlana
