The Washington Medallion Quilt

As promised, here is a photo of the finished Washington Medallion Quilt. It feels great to finish a quilt, doesn't it?! After I finished the quilt, it took two long days to machine quilt and another 3 hours to bind. A sleeve remains to be attached, along with a label. Quilters, please don't forget to label your quilts; when I look at vintage antique quilts, I always wish I knew their story... don't let the next generation of quilters wonder the same thing about your quilts!

Happy stitching -

Wow Sue, just georgeous. I have always loved your quilts. I'm a faster piecer than appliquer (if there is such a word) so I really love this one. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sue,
I really like your medallion quilt design - did you design it yourself? I'm very interested in the pattern of this quilt, can you direct me to it please?
Well done, what a huge effort and it looks amazing!

In answer to Sally's question, the Washington Medallion quilt is a block-of-the-month that I designed. It is available from Quakertown Quilts (www.quakertownquilts.com).
