Aunt Lucy’s Medallion Quilt

I have a soft spot in my heart for reproduction fabrics and patterns.  I love old quilts and enjoy reading about them and have a few old tops that I treasure.

I could not resist Collette’s block of the month at Quilter’s Common for this pattern.  I got a bit behind on finishing it but here is the top ready for quilting.  I was inspired by Collette to add the striped border.  I love how the Green jumps out now.  The picture before the outer blocks and border were added highlights the reds.  My blue/green border gives it another look altogether.

Piecing this top was a bit of a challenge and I feel that I have really improved my skills quite a bit.  So, I am glad I spent the time to fuss with all of these blocks.

And now it is Quilted!
