Trying something new...

I have a hundred quilt books, just like all quilters.... I love them... I love looking through them and seeing the fabric ideas... tell me I am not alone in this???

So I have had my copy of Liberty Love book for ages and have had 3 sewing projects from it that I want to make. It has just been a matter of timing...

This last week has been hard work - a lovely couple of new courses started, which were great fun. But I finished the week with an eye infection. Turns out I am allergic to the main ointment used to treat the infection so I am not in drops number 2 and feeling very sorry for myself!

So the obvious thing to do is to start making a new quilt! This is where the Marcelle Medallion comes in!

I have never made a medallion quilt before but I have been hoarding my bundles Katy (I'm a Ginger Monkey) and Rita (Red Pepper Quilts) that are from Fat Quarter Shop just for this project.

You can see from Katy's bundle that it is full of sweet prints and Rita's is no different:

I am very excited to start this quilt, but I suspect it will take me a while as I am desperate to get my Swoon quilt finished and on my bed before it gets too much colder!

Have you started this quilt? Would love to see!


  1. Lovely pattern and lovely fabrics ... have fun sewing! ... :) Pat

  2. Great fabric choices, they look v harmonious! Hope you're feeling better soon.

  3. I really want to make this quilt too. It is on my long list of quilts I want to make. Your fabrics are beautiful. Feel better!

  4. Looking forward to seeing your quilt progress, I love this quilt but it may be a long time before I tackle it!

  5. I love your fabric choices for the Marcelle. I too have been reading and rereading my Liberty Book. I really want to make this quilt too. It is def on my to - do list.
    Can't wait to see your progress.
