Applique Medallion Quilt

My customer Carolyn makes the most beautiful quilts and they usually have at least some wonderfully executed needle turn applique in them.  This time, Carolyn has made a medallion quilt with a stunning floral applique central block.

Carolyn's quilt has been quilted with a piano key border, lots of continuous curves and loops in the blocks and feathers in the morone triangles and sashing.

I do particularly love the central applique block.  This has been quilted with feathers around the perimeter and filled with pebbles.  I love the effect of pebbles for background quilting, even though it is rather time consuming.

Thanks for visiting - I hope you have enjoyed Carolyn's quilt.


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
