Finished days before it was to be displayed at my guild’s Voices in Cloth 2014 quilt show late last month, my Wheel Medallion has been one of my most challenging endeavors in recent times.
Having taken a class with Becky Goldsmith of Piece o’ Cake fame, I felt I was much more able to execute this applique technique. So I incorporated the applique border into a medallion quilt I had been

Not yet photographed professionally, this quilt can only be seen in these partial shots for now.
Stay tuned for a better picture of the complete quilt.
I love the result, and this quilt already has a cousin under construction, using all of the leftover pieces that did not fit into the design of this quilt. So stay tuned for that, too.
And, on a recurring note, I am finding that I have not yet shaken the fabric postcard bug.

And these were made for a friend’s Cinco de Mayo-themed engagement party:
I will probably keep doing these wonderfull little gems, just because they are soooo fun (and are completed sooooo quickly).
