Often, after working on a quilt with a lot of math and small pieces, I feel like I need a good, easy, but still interesting project to work on. A palette cleanser of sorts. I've been in the mood to... Continue reading

As it stands, the medallion and border 1 add up to 21" finished. My goal is for the finished quilt to be approximately 60" square (it might be slightly smaller or bigger, but not by much). As far as fabrics go, there will be a few more added, but I don't have a total number as I am still fine-tuning the design. Hope that helps!
