Well, here it is. The final border in our “Gwennie Inspired Medallion Sew-a-long”.
When I chose the “something fishy” theme for this final round, I had something else in mind. In actuality, I couldn’t make it work so I decided on a simple “scallop” shaped border. I felt like I was cheating so I found this cute little “marine life” fabric for a backing and then I felt more like I was complying!
Because I did this in the “potholder” method, it was a bit of a challenge (I’m not that good with math) to get that scallop curve to come together perfectly (well, close enough anyway) at the corners. It now fits nicely with all my “good enough” quilts and I love it!
I had a lot of fun with this sew-a-long and I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the different interpretations of each theme. I learned a little about improv and how to “try” to let go of my usual perfection (wink) and I learned a lot about how the potholder method works in a medallion style.
Thanks once again to all my partners in crime (Lori, Cynthia, Cathy and Katy) and everyone who participated for all the inspiration and motivation! So much creativity! If I could reach out there, I would pat you all on the back – good job!
Lori is doing the link up this month (here) so don’t forget to stop by and see all the beautiful quilts.
