Williamsburg Medallion Top finished - and a few more CW blocks!

I finally finished Marcie's Williamsburg Medallion top! Now to figure out how to quilt it! I flipped the way the HST border went to give it more light space and then a more definate darker outline. Doesn't it look fun! I had told Marcie the other day that this pattern would make an awesome baby quilt if you had the right baby fabrics, don't you think!



And here is a Civil War block I made last night called Panic. Ummmmm do you see anything wrong with it! A lack of sleep, too much work and stress and this block said "PANIC"! I thought about leaving it, but ummm, I couldn't do it! So I did fix it! Below are a few more blocks I got done!

Hi Dawn
I am a fellow quilter and I found you when I googled Gwen Marston. I am taking a week long workshop with her and Freddy Moran next week and I am so excited. After reading your blog about your class with her I am even more excited!! Isn't it a great life being a quilter? another day when I have more time I'm coming back to visit and read some more of your posts. Hope you get to work on a quilt today. Rhondi

I just love what you've done. And I couldn't agree more about being a great baby quilt - it's just the right size and everything *s*

I think that would make a wonderful baby quilt...and who says it has to be baby colors!

As always - love the civil war blocks.

I really think your Williamsburg Medallion is beautiful. Don't worry about the other. I remember painting a mural on the wall of my son's room when he was a little boy. I was finishing it very late with a bluebird in the air. I kept thinking something wasn't right, but it wasn't until the next morning that I saw I had painted a bird with three wings. These things happen! They are some of the fun of life.

CW block mistake? Honestly I did not realize it until I read further down (hehe), but I'm glad it was easy fix for you.

How did I miss this earlier? You cracked me up with "panic." Thanks for sharing that. It's fun. And funny. Bottom blocks - love 'em.

And yes, Medallion would make a great baby quilt. I'm tempted.

I love this medallion top - I'm always a sucker for medallion style quilts and I agree flipiing those outer triangles really gives it definition - lovely - wouldn't it be gorgeous in light blue and white for a baby boy?

You have such a gift for selecting colors and fabrics. The Medallion is bright and cheerful and very "Pennsylvania."
