This quilt is for my grandson and his bride to be. This was my first attempt at actually following a pattern. It is not perfect but it is the best I could do. Just got it back from the quilters. It took me a month to make. Then from an old pillow sham for a sample, I made the shams. I really like the medallion pattern. The top fabric I bought a the Nine Patch in Effingham, Ill. The backing, I bought at the Paducah, Kentucky show.
