There's a Gwennie (Gwen Marston) Inspired Medallion QAL going on in blog land.
Lori at Humble Quilts is hosting the monthly linky party.
The first theme from Lori for the center block is BASKET. Other ladies will decide our themes for the coming months. It should be fun!
I prefer making lots of pieced blocks over one appliqued blocks any day so I pieced my blocks and made traditional "cake stand" blocks that I'm calling baskets since I called them baskets in another quilt I made in 2014. In that quilt I filled most of my "baskets" with flowers and fruits and some other fun things I had in my stash.
But there were no baskets of chocolate in that quilt! Gasp!
Well...I love chocolate (and cookies and donuts) so I filled a few baskets with those favorites for my center block. I decided to leave off two corners until I decide what to do for the second round. I might take off the other two corners, put the missing two back on or who knows what.
I like big quilts so that's what this will be. I don't have a design wall so took it outside today after I got home from work to hang it on the clothesline. It was way too windy for a photo (boo hoo) so my husband came to my rescue and helped hold it still for a photo.
After I filled up those baskets I remembered I had won some baskets last year from Block Lotto (or was it the year before?) Anyway, I haven't used them all in a quilt yet (I used a few with some woven blocks in a quilt ) so I decided to sew them all together and play along with these as a center also.
I see the next theme is CHILDHOOD. Hmmmm...
I'm off to view everyone's basket centers.
