12 Marcelle Medallion.


Since I had so much fun making my x plus quilt during the #xplusalong on Instagram, I decided to join in on another informal quiltalong this month, the #medallionalong!

We're making the Marcelle Medallion quilt from Alexia Marcelle Abegg's new book, Liberty Love (the pattern can also be found in the new UK magazine Love Quilting & Patchwork)
This quilt is meant to be really scrappy, so I pulled a bunch of different fabrics in six colors - coral, citron, light grays and whites, magenta, teal, and navy.
 I made the center square last week and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I'm being extra careful to make sure all my seams and points match up on this one.  It's a good pattern to practice piecing accurately, especially with those Y seams!
This quilt grows gradually with the addition of each border.  I'm having fun working on it in little chunks of time between other projects.
I finished adding the third border yesterday and have all my pieces cut for the flying geese in the next one.  I'm really enjoying playing with all the little scrappy bits!

  2. I love your color scheme! It's taken me a while to wrap my head around "citron" as a color, but now I'm kind of obsessed with it. Also, are those all washi tapes on the little rack? So cute!
