Howdy folks! It's time for a Penny Poppleton quilt-along, and what better project to quilt along with friends than the gorgeous Marcelle Medallion quilt from Alexia Abegg's fantastic book Liberty Love?
So, I'm not one to tell you what to do with your life, but you should really consider buying this book. Not only does it have beautiful quilt patterns but there are dresses, sewing notions, and bags in there as well! And the fabric is so beautiful, not only the Liberty, but everything else, too. You can find it on Amazon, on Book Depository, Better World Books, and Alexia's shop.
Now, confession time: I made this quilt already.
But I loved it so much I wanted to make it twice! And I learned a lot along the way, so I'll be imparting tips and tricks to get through the tricky parts. And since I'll be sewing alongside you, and I'm obsessed with my iPhone, you can reach me pretty much anytime to chat about how it's all going!
The introduction to the Marcelle Medallion QAL (aka the MMQAL, hashtag #mmqal on Instagram and Twitter) will be on September 2, and we will kick off September 9th! (Note: that's Australian time!) The MMQAL will run for ten weeks, until November 4. If you're interested in joining in, please do! There will be prizes almost every week, linky parties, and tricks and tips too! It should be a lot of fun. It's a great little quilt to make and if you finish the top by the wrap up date, you are eligible to win a FABULOUS grand prize!
