Earlier this year I was pretty much smitten by the “Marcelle Medallion” pattern by Alexia Abegg found in her book Liberty Love: 25 Projects to Quilt & Sew Featuring Liberty of London Fabrics. I meant to take a long time with this project, but as I completed each additional border I just wanted to finish it up. The quilt was pieced from my stash (except for the backing), and I had a lot of fun pulling fabrics each step of the way.
I sent it to Natalia for quilting, and it arrived home last week. Her quilting is absolutely beautiful. She emailed me the weekend I was at market to let me know she was starting on it, and the funniest thing happened. While at market I noticed lots of quilts with bubbles and circle quilting designs, which I loved. I made a mental note to have something quilted sometime with that pattern. I didn’t say anything about this to Natalia; however, she did lots of gorgeous circle quilting on my quilt! The combination of the circles and the straight line quilting in the borders is just fabulous!
I love the low-volume backgrounds and the mix of fabrics I love! (Photo above by Natalia)
I didn’t waste any time binding this quilt–it’s already finished! (Phot above by Natalia).
Thanks, Natalia for amazing quilting on my Medallion!
