Circle Medallion Quilt Finished!

This quilt is for my niece.
Originally my design was supposed to be easy. Do a medallion quilt, mostly easy borders with one or two more complicated ones.  hahahahha!
Making the circles took a long time, appliqueing took some getting use to. The flying geese is a block I had never made before so... they were fun even if they are quite time consuming. But maybe not 2x4 inch blocks next time. :)

The front
 I did a curved bias binding so I wouldn't have to trim off any of my circles. I found that I just loved the circles. As the quilt became bigger, more complicated, and intricate (look at that backing); I was trying to brain storm ways to get this done before my niece turned 30!
The back
Some detail shots of the piecing and quilting. I used a walking foot for all of this.

Note: after washing and drying some of the applique did not stay as one would want, so I will do a little more quilting around the outer circle border before shipping.



  1. Wow, so much work went into that! She will love it!

  2. This looks great! love the circles and geese together.

  3. Oh my. What a beautiful quilt. And that binding. You work is beautiful.
