Heads up Quilters!!! In 2010 I am planning on doing two (not one but TWO) Block of the Months on this blog. One will be completely appliquéd (well, maybe a little piecing in the sashing) The other will have two options, one completely pieced and one combining piecing and appliqué. Lucky for me my friend Debbie is going to sew the completely pieced one in her special Debbie colors. I’m going the combo quilt.
Speaking of that, I was working on the design for the center medallion the other day and I thought I would show you a little of my process. I knew that I wanted to have a center flower with other flowers radiating out. I have designed many different flowers for quilts so I started with a few of my favorites. After fiddling with the flowers I draw ¼ of the quilt. (This only works if you have a symmetrical design)
