MMQAL: Medallions in Progress!

Wow. Just WOW. Has everyone been following the hashtag #mmqal on Instagram? Has everyone seen the Flickr group? I've been so overwhelmed by the beautiful medallions popping up! I haven't seen a single one that I didn't like. They are all INCREDIBLE!!

Now, last week we covered English paper piecing and foundation piecing, but Danielle (who is, by the way, totally rad) has written up an AMAZING tutorial on freezer paper piecing! Do check it out. This is a really interesting technique and I especially like how easy it makes those Y seams!!

Here's where I am up to. My centre medallion is done, and though I have border one finished, it is a bit wrinkly. I'm going to unpick it and resew it, so you guys only get to see my centre. I chose to foundation-piece it this time and it was a lot of fun!

Now for the fun part. I've been trying to keep up with everyone's posts on Instagram but I'm lost for blogland! So how about this: link up, show me how you're going, and at the end of the week, you'll be in the draw for a prize!

Big Prize - 16 Sept

A charm pack of Briar Rose, a template set for Grandmother's Star by Victorian Textiles, and a little Polaroid notions pouch (zipper on the other side).

There might be a little something for those who are submitting to the Flickr group too... :)

Link up and tell me how you're all doing!

Cheers

Penny xx

I would like to follow your quilt along even though I have a head start. It's fun to see all the variations and color combos.
