Marcelle Medallion Quilt - Part Two - FNSI

This is the only project that I am currently working on that peaked my
interest last night for FNSI so I ran with it.

I chose to share my progress last night on Instsagram
(@lilabellelane) and here is how it went :o) 

The next border is triangles.

Then I decided to audition some fabrics for the next border.

 I love how it is coming together so far.
I decided to make this border bold as I didn't want
to loose it in between the triangles and next border.

Next is a border of Flying Geese.
I considered doing something else as I really do not
like making Flying Geese but I stuck with them.

Trimming is the worst bit.
 Especially when you cant count and end
up 13 short!
(Not doing to bad with someone who has their finger still bound and numb)

This is how it looks right this minute (below) :o)
I am itching to get in and sew this border on and start working 
on the next one - bricks :o)

This quilt is addictive and I am LOVING it :o)
Hope you had a great FNSI doing something you love.
Hugs, Sharon

  2. Sharon it looks awesome - you've made me decide to drop all my other projects and make this one. I was planning on doing in the school holidays but now I think I'm going to start it this afternoon...the kids can do the house work, Mamma's gonna sew!
