The first five parts of Friendship Medallion are done and it's now 65-1/2" X 65-1/2". It's too big for my design wall, so that's why it looks a little ripply on the right side - part of it is masking-taped to the concrete wall. But boy, am I likin' this or what!?
If you're thinking this is a great project for stash-busting, you're right. I can now get the lids back onto a few of my fabric bins!
If you'd like to join in, do! It's free.
There are no time constraints for making this quilt, just a few simple rules:
- No buying fabric! Make it from your stash.
- Swap fabric with friends for greater variety. Hence the name "Friendship Medallion."
- To get instructions for each step, email a picture of your finished previous step to the Patchwork Pumpkin quilt shop.
To register, just go here to Patchwork Pumpkin. Then, Therese will email you instructions to begin making part one, the checkerboard center.
Therese emailed me to say that quite a few people are making FM since reading my blog. The world seems a little smaller for knowing that I'm sharing this with some of you. I hope to see more FMs started in your blogs that I follow.
I have FM part six in hand. What color next? Probably blue. Then two more parts to go. Funny how it works. Each part seems to take just a little longer than the previous one.
Check out my friend Kerry's quilt at ALittleStitching. Hers is an assortment of scrappy colors. So pretty! Linda
