Pattern Location: Australian Patchwork and Quilting Annual 2004 and Vol 12 No 6
Size: 70 x 70
Date: November 2007 - December 2013
Inspiration: As a new quilter, I saw this pattern and fell in love.
Special Fabrics: Grandma gave me a box of scraps. Many of these made it into this quilt. I collected fall colours for a long time. Aunt Sandie found the perfect backing.
* Buy quality fabric. Loose weave is the pits
* Cut carefully
* Use heat 'in bond for applique
* Cut away extra layers when sewing triangles into corners. The extra layers are really hard to quilt through.
* Watch beginnings and ends of seams - I have a tendencey to flare out.
This turned into a Christmas gift for my parents-in-law.
The original medallion was out by over half an inch - I unsewed it and made it into a wall hanging.
This quilt was machine quilted. Some was with a walking foot, the rest was using Leah Day's techniques.
