medallion and women of the Bible flimsies

After sharing the WOB blocks last blog I had a change of mind and have made one quilt using 20 of the 12" blocks   all  the other blocks are on hold for now.  Not sure when this will get quilted   have the wadding and backing but not made the sandwich yet,   it is sitting with the others waiting to be done.I will bind it with the lilac that has been used in all the blocks and the corner stones

I have also made a small medallion quilt with the help of Jennie Rayment and create and craft tv channel. This was done over 2 programmes but I have not used all the instructions,  the medallion in the middle is Jennie`s design but have added plain borders, another round of Jennie`s and a round of my own. It measures 50" square.  I plan to bind it with the spot fabric used in one of the borders. A few photos went from me to Jennie for help and advice which was a good help.



A quick make yesterday was this fabric basket,  had watched Stuart Hillard make one and as I had some bosal had a go myself.  Next time I will use interfacing on the lining as it is very floppy.



A few more blocks made for the winter solstice , bee blessed, the children`s library all BOMs and 2 more red work blocks done on my Stitchin` wisdom quilt

I love the way the lilac and purple bring the WOB quilt together. It's going to look great when finished. The medallion is so harmonious -'it all blends so beautifully. The basket looks really useful - a good size. I can see that stiffening it would be preferable. Well done you!

Love the WOB finish. It is so colorful, and yet the lilac carries through so nicely. It's a good size as well. The medallion is a real winner. Your colors and borders are terrific, different but it all ties together. Then at the end you just casually add all those other projects you e been doing. You always surprise me, so talented.

Your WOB quilt is so pretty, Margaret! You really are developing a clear, crisp style. It must be all those modern quilters you hang around with! Great finish. :D
