A Finish


                      What Can You Make with 15 Min a Day?


                           Why Not a Medallion Style Cross Quilt?!

The last time I posted I thought these blocks would become my first on-point quilt but obviously that didn't happen!  Instead I went for this look which I felt was more graphic.  The quilting is all in the ditch and echo ... a tiny bit denser in the center area.  I felt it needed a border and the most difficult part finding something that would not compete for attention and I'm happy with the outcome.  So, 15 min a day, in my opinion, is a good thing for sure!

Is there a pattern for this? I'm making some scrappy blocks right now and would love to try this quilt.

No pattern, Sarah, but you can do it! If you enlarge the photo and study the made-fabric crosses you can see each quarter is a rectangle and a square plus a white square. I made the block to finish at 12" but you could make it finish at any size.

I love the brightness of this quilt. The white against the bright colors really makes the made fabric zing! Beautiful.
