Easy Street Medallion

Via Flickr:
It seems that my quilt wants to go in a different direction than Bonnie intended it to go :)

It's hard to tell, but there are lilac-lavender squares where it looks rather plain (they look much prettier in person). Will probably repeat the lilac color for the setting triangles, but that will only bring the top to around 50" square. I will then play around with adding some more borders to bring it to 60-65" square. I also changed out the 4 corners after i took this pic, repeating the star pattern, as I had 16 of the double flying geese left over. (edit: see below)

None of the components are sewn together yet in these photos, so many of the geese look strange.


  1. Really Cool Misha! You renegade you! Love it. I have one more block to sew and then I can start to assemble the quilt. I love it. My husband does not. It is to bright for his taste. To bad for him. It is for my bed. LOL! I made him a log cabin quilt 100 x 100 double batting last year.

    1. Thanks, Aileen!! I had fun with it, despite a negative comment a non-quilter made. He can go (censored) ;)

      Changed out the corners, updating the post now to show the other option...

  2. Your medallion layout is stunning. I think I'd go another round of lilacs and turquoises to tie the centre into a border of some sort. Whatever you decide, I love love love it!

  3. Misha, It is so pretty. I LOVE the colors. Your doing a wonderful job. :)
