Coxcomb Medallion

It is done.  The top of the Coxcomb Medallion quilt.  I started this in February 2015 as a block of the month.  The flying geese were done over a four month stretch, there are 224 of them.  All the small 3 inch blocks were done a bunch at a time.  The 6 inch ones were done two or three a month and the Swag, pumpkin seed blocks, and center appliqué were made up over a three month period.  Yes, they are hand appliquéd <smile>.  There are twelve floater/borders and four rounds of pieced blocks.  Its about 94 inches square.  I am planning on a dark blue binding.  I enjoyed making this quilt because of the variety of blocks and the very good instructions by Sue Garman.   Green and pink are not my first choice for colors, but I have to stretch my likes/preferences and try different combinations, otherwise all my quilts would be blue.  Now to finish up Allietare, all my blocks are made and setting triangles.  I need to find a good border fabric.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.  Thanks for reading.

  1. I am so impressed. The thing I like least about quilting is putting the borders on, and this is all borders! I love how it all looks together. How will you quilt it?

    • I’m with you on the borders. Usually I just cut a strip to the right width and sew it on, cut it to size and go on to the next side. Since there were so many borders, I had to pin and measure, otherwise it would have turned out to be a rhombus instead of a square lol.

    • Sue Garman is the designer, if you’re not familiar with her quilts, take a look at her web site. I enjoyed making the variety of blocks she chose.
