Decisions Made

Liberated quilting is all very well but if you get too liberated and free, your fabric starts to ripple and warp which does not bode well for a flat piece of fabric to quilt. So after adding on a couple more borders, the patchwork I began in the Gwen Marston class has had to stop growing. 
My second decision, after months of procrastinating, was to join these blocks

into a 4 x 4 centrepiece
The Quilts in the Barn show inspired me to join these guys up and then add a series of borders.
I'm not sure what the borders will be.
Maybe flying ducks.
I have quite a few extra blocks made, each one different, that will also go on as a border.
It has been hard to get myself moving with my quilting these days.
The main thing is that I am beginning to use up some of my fabric.


  1. I really love your "liberated quilt", the colours just talk to me. And good for your for using up your stash; I wish I could say I'm doing the same!

  2. Two beautiful quilt tops Melissa, I love them both, but especially your improv, the colours are amazing. xo

  3. Your medallion is wonderful! The colors really pop, and I love the little bit of green in the red border. Your other project will be fun with borders too!

  4. What a vibrant medallion quilt, full of whimsy. It's just beautiful! Your second project is too and it will be fun to see what you do about borders.
