DWMonday ~ Gwennie Medallion

I’ve never been happy with the center block of my medallion top. It looks too sparse, like I don’t like appliqué or something!


It’s time to fix this before the top grows any bigger. I’ve pulled out a few books that have some primitive appliqué designs to see if I can pull a few elements that I can add to this.


As I find shapes I think might work, I am tracing them  onto freezer paper and cutting them out.


I haven’t come to Amy final decisions yet, but even laying a few pieces on this makes it look better!


I hope to finalize my design and get my pieces prepped today.

Have a good one!
