Friday Flaunt - More Snowflake Medallion

If you check my progress on my commitment to make and finish ten quilts on my Ten in '10 list (see right sidebar), you'll see I've made the donation and giveaway quilts, but I haven't gotten far on the to-finish list. How are other Ten in '10ers doing?

With a little breather on the must-make side of sewing, I pulled out the Snowflake Medallion quilt I started in the spring, 2009. This is my progress on this 80" X 80" quilt.
I've been doing a little of this: hand applique, following the back-basting technique.
Back-basting is now my most favorite method of hand applique.

And a little more of it here.

Then I've been cutting, sewing, pressing and trimming to make 182 half-square triangles
that turn into 48 pinwheel blocks...

...that need to be made into these on-point pinwheels.
Whew. All those precision points that are so hard to achieve! It seems I'll never get them all made. But then, after one more narrow border, the quilt top will be finished.

This is a beautiful quilt. I love the white on white bulls eye background fabric. It looks wonderful (especially with the pinwheels).

Wow, it looks great so far. I like the back basting technique too.

Beautiful!!! I think the colors that you used look so fabulous together. This is such an amazing quilt and is going to be treasure once completed.
