Having no real plans or ideas for quilts I decided to participate in my quilt guild's challenge. You may have done something similar. The challenge is to make a medallion quilt using specific fabric given out at each monthly meeting. The January fabric was the starry print. The medallion had to measure 18 X 24 finished.
Above is my center block with the starry fabric.
Trying out another border above.
I made a plan and then changed it, of course.
I remembered this set of templates and thought it might improve my plan.
I used the triangles to make a pointy border on the top and bottom.
I made the final border postage stamp size - 1 1/2 " squares.
When I tried the final border I realized I had to be careful to get them in the right order.
Yea! As you can see below the border alternates dark and light.
It turned out just the way I wanted.
I also participated in the Color Challenge. I joined and posted my red blocks on Thursday.
But ... I put the finish photo on my other blog. OOPS!
If you want to see my red blocks, you can see them here.
More on challenges next time. Have a good week.
