Update on the medallion

I was perusing the giant 3-ring binder of lessons for the medallion quilt and discovered that there is another 8" border between the border I'm doing now and the final chintz border. Looks like I won't be done with this top tomorrow after all. That's OK - I think the 8" variable stars that I felt weren't appropriate for this border will be fine for the next one. The 4" centers will allow me to feature a bunch more of the beautiful prints in the baskets. And I love to make variable stars. Since I need to do another border it's a good thing it's one I'll really enjoy doing!

This quilt is beautiful! I'm going to have to try borders like this. I've never done flying geese but it does make a pretty line doesn't it? And I love the checkerboard alongside it!

Patti, what's another border between friends :) And it's not like you're going to run short of fabric!

The current quilt is just spectacular Patti! I love it! And I'm with you, never would have thought those fabrics would be that bright.
It has a Country Threads look, and I love the out borders so much! Great job! Glad you had fun with Joseph. Hugs, Finn
