I've finally added the last sides of the last border onto Lizzie Mae's Medallion.
And, I was able to spread it out on the carpet at home.
I was thinking about adding a brown binding after quilting. Perhaps it needs blue. What do you think?

Can I say Red/Brown like in the star on the second to last border :-)

What a stunning quilt! I brown would look good, but so would a darker blue (something that wouldn't draw the eye too much).

Great work!

Your gorgeous quilt certainly caught not only my attention but also took my breath away!I have a divine attraction to medallion quilts. Finding your post today makes my heart race with the possibility of creating another medallion quilt. Appliqued centerpiece is astounding, I must know more about it, is this a pattern available for sale or an original design?
I would add a blue binding to constrast with the pieced bordered edge!

It's amazing! I absolutely love it. I think either blue or brown would work for a binding. Isn't that helpful?

Colleen said...

Your quilt inspired me, found the pattern online and ordered it! Thank you for your post and sharing your amazing talent!

Wow!! This looks amazing! Either color binding would be nice, but seeing it on your carpet with a little dark of the carpet framing it, I'm leaning toward a brown. Your fabrics are so spot on for this project and your technique is inspiring!

Hmmm...must order this pattern. Threadbear is going to know me on a first name basis, as I recently ordered that basket pattern from them! (they should give you a "cut" of the profit since your picture is inspiring pattern ordering!)
