    Pam: Not sure if you really wanted a close up but I really have been making use of the border print that expired the colors I used. I look at border prints very differently now because the lend themselves so well to Medallion quilts.

    oh that is a beautiful quilt! I give you oodles of applause. You did that round FAST! wow! I think for me there is only one more round. Its a ribbon round and its wearing me out! I am making this for a little girl so I think it will be more than big enough for her. She will get a kick out of the rainbow effect I have now 15 blocks done out of a zillion to go! ok maybe not a zillion but it feels like I need a zillion! I got too tired and had to put it down. It is a start however right? one bit at a time.. slowly but surely will win the race! uh huh lol.. I am so pooped out I think who cares about winning I just want to FINISH the race! I think I can I think I can (tell myself this long enough it just might work).

    Elisabrat: Sure you can. I love looking at your work but done or not a picture of the WIP would give us the idea. The important thing is don't exhaust yourself, your health is more important than anything.

    Thanks for the close up, Emma. I was trying to figure out the border between the 2 black strips. No wonder I couldn't figure out what pattern it was! That border fabric is perfect.

    Beautiful Emma S. Now I'm going to be looking at border prints differently, too. And stripes.

    Pippa & Emma & Reskylr: All are beautiful!! Emma, I love your colors. And you're right, a border print would make a medallion quilt a LOT quicker to do. Maybe that's a new idea in fabrics to collect.

    Emma, that is so pretty, I love border prints too, just wish I had some for mine. Still working on it, but started a second one with a small fabric panel I found while clean up a couple weeks ago. Just finished my first round on it. I used some of my hand dyed fabrics for the HST. Have really enjoyed everyones quilts during this quest of ours, looking forward to seeing them all completed. I'll post pictures of my other one soon as I get the next round done, but here is the second one I have started.

    Mama, that is an awesome start for a fabulous new one. I love border fabrics. Fast quick, easy, color coordinated. Winners for sure IMHO.

    I am now I believe 1/4 done with my border. It is going to take forever! My next border is in the border section on quilters cache and I THOUGHT I was doing the border Jaba did in a beautiful star quilt she did for her son. Turns out I am doing a different one and its made of so many little blocks! a ton of little blocks to be exact. OMG what have I done!!!!! I will be snipping and sewing for the next decade ... maybe will get half done by the first of next month. its slower than molasses! but.. wont it be pretty

    Elisabrat, would it be quicker to start over with a different pattern? Doesn't sound like you are having much fun.

    Pam, I was thinking the same thing. Those could be saved for another project or used to make a rectangle instead of a square. I was also wondering what it would look like on a quilt like Elizabrat's, where the colors define the rounds so distinctly, if there were different but similar patterns on each side. That way you could find easier patterns. But I'll bet Elizabrat has thought of all these things and is plowing ahead.

    I have sure have learned something on this project. If you don't like what you've done, give it up. I was trying to use up some old colors and have been battling since the beginning to make things work. But, I too am plowing ahead, too committed at this point. I'm using Jaba's 6" lattice on this round and it is easy and going fast.

    That is beautiful!! I plan on making another one with a panel, but I keep putting it aside.

    Emma, lovely start with that panel. I'm sure I have a panel somwhere.....! Someone stop me! I want to start a new medallion before finishing the present one. Being a serial starter is a very serious illness but I know I have fellow sufferers LOL

    That panel is soooo pretty! Love the colors and the first round! Anxious to watch it grow.

    Yes, spring is here and I know that I will be spending more time outside then quilting. I always slow down in the summer then come back refreshed in the fall. Cycles are not bad things.

    Pippa,

    Emma & Jill, Yep, the weeds are out, ahead of flowers as usual. Time to head out to the garden.

    Mamahen, When I squinted at your new panel, it looked like a starburst of flower petals. Did you dye your fabric yourself?

    Yes I did, last year, how convenient that I found the panel in the stash, it looked like the fabrics were dyed just for it. They were my first attempt at dyeing fabric, so nice to have something to pick from without have to buy more fabric.

    I believe Eliasbrat stated the quilt would be started the first of January. Am hoping she means Jan of 2015. Am I correct or has the quilt started on Jan 2014 instead? If it has already started is there a separate thread or different site for the quilt info?
