Today’s finish is a big one! I’m happy to say my Gwennie Inspired Medallion from the QAL is finally done!
While most people made wall or throw sized quilts, I added enough borders to make mine fit my queen bed. The problem with making big quilts is trying to get good photos. The slightest breeze does this:
Here are some detail shots.
I’m really glad I went back and added more appliqué to the center block.
I used a plain backing and the quilting shows up beautifully.
It fits my bed perfectly!
Now it is ready to send off to Lori at Humble Quilts for the First Friday show in Oregon in May. I just have to find a really big box.
Have a great day!

Wow! Just wow. The appliqué, the piecing, the quilting…. WOW!
I always love your color choices. It’s perfect on your bed. How lovely!
You did a beautiful job, both on the piecing and the quilting!
Oh wow! This is gorgeous, and it looks so wonderful on the bed. I really like the design choices you made and the colors are fabulous.
Thank you for sharing your lovely medallion quilt finish. It has been years since I have tried applique. Your quilting is superb. I am envious of your sleigh bed as I have always wanted one. Thank you for linking up with this week’s TGIFF.
This turned out quite lovely. I haven’t worked on an applique in years. Your quilting is just beautiful. I am jealous of having a sleigh bed,as I have always wanted one. Thank you for linking up your finish with this week’s TGIFF.
Love it…beautiful design and beautifully executed…..
It looks fabulous! Congratulations on finishing. I really like the last two borders and binding together. Thanks for showing the quilting from the back, it’s beautiful and looks wonderful on your bed.
it’s a beautiful quilt, and a fantastic finish! great job! and you’re right, it needed that bit of applique in the middle. also: maybe some matching pillowcases? they would look really nice, too. some light ones, against the wooden headboard.
