Piecework Sampler top finished and more Medallion Sew-along

All the blocks are together with their sashing and cornerstones. It is the first time I have join Cheri with one of her sew-alongs.
I am thinking about adding a border around the whole quilt., maybe using the same fabric as the sashing.

I went to a new-to-me quilting shop during the week.

This is what came home with me. Some more French General fabric.

I love the fabric on the left.

I am planning to go back next week because they have 20% off everything in the store. :)

After lots of help from Lori I am back on track with the Medallion Sew-along. I now know why my pinwheels turned out too small....and how to get the next block the right size too! (Thank you Lori!!!)

So, here are some blocks for the 2nd pieced round (with some of those new fabrics!)

I have a few more finished and fabric choosen for a couple more.

On the hand work front I am still making delectable mountain blocks and appliqueing Jacob's Coat.

Winter has begun here in Melbourne. Friday night brough a spectacular thunderstorm with lots of welcome rain (welcome here because we were lucky enough not to be inconvenienced by flooding, unlike some others around our city.) Today we had sunshine again. :)

My thoughts with those in Oklahoma and surrounding states being affected by deadly tornadoes.


  1. The blocks are looking great!

  7. I love your medallion quilt so far! Such lovely fabrics! The second border blocks are intriguing and I'm itching to make a few myself :0)

  8. The sashing nicely ties all those blocks together. Those French General fabrics are yummy! What a cute pincushion in the last photo.
