Mary's Monterrey Medallions

Mary and I took a Monterrey Medallions class from Susan Baker back in September. Mary had chosen the yummiest fabric. She had reds, golds, brown and greens, some with Jacquard circles. The pattern book had some sytles of quilting that Mary liked and wanted me to put into her quilt. She wanted some feathers and stipple. Oh, how I hate stipple. I have to really concentrate to keep from crossing a line. It does make a nice background filler, though.

I put in some setting triangles by quilting a diagonal stitch down the green blocks using a ruler. I put some feathers in the triangles using Norma Sharp's Feather Bock Set from Simple Quilting Stitches.
I put feathers (in red) around the big center medallion and echoed them in gold and then stipple inside that. I put continuous curves around the large center star. I used Quilter's Dream Puff.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
