Today is the big day! Time for all of us to link up and reveal our final round for the Gwennie Inspired Medallion Quilt Along! If you recall, Wendy from The Constant Quilter had the honor of choosing the theme for the final round. And being from Maine, she chose FISH! Fish? Yes, fish!
I scratched my head for a long time over this one! I tried to figure out how I could use these pumpkin seed blocks that I made a few years ago.
Okay, now I’ve got it! Do you see my fish?
Does this help? LOL
Okay, that is the best I could do. So here is where things stood after the final round:
Yeah, I know, You really have to use your imagination here! But I will NEVER forget what it represents! Thanks Wendy for making me think outside the box!
It didn’t feel done to me at this point. So I added another round of scrappy borders.
I still had that pile of pumpkin seed blocks so I added those too!
Eventually, I will add one narrow solid border and one wider one to bring this up to about 96 inches square. I’m really pleased with how this has turned out. I never would have made this without the prompting and motivation provided by this QAL.

Thanks to my fellow partners in crime, this quilt along has been a blast! And thanks to all of you that played along.
Also please add your project, finished or not to the link up on Lori’s page.
Have a great day!
