Seriously! I have an idea how you can bust some serious stash. Afterall that is the goal around here, right? A few years ago I made a few Drunkard's Path blocks by a new technique at the time. It was a fairly easy technique, but I found out really soon that I did not want to make enough for a whole quilt. I decided to make those blocks the center of a medalian quilt. Around, around, and around I went as I kept adding to my quilt. Checkerboard, Applique, some Log Cabin blocks. The final round included applique in the corners. This quilt has been a real crowd pleaser. Someone once ask me what is it that makes a successful scrap quilt. I think the answer is the same as with any planned farics quilt. Pick your colors and then use as many prints in those colors as you like. This makes for a perfect recipe for a Stash Busting quilt. You can trim that stash down to a managable size.
The next row is applique. The pattern was taken from a rug in our family room.
The next will be these 9 patches~~~~~~~~~
My hope is that I have inspired you to make your own Medalian quilt. The best place to start is your orphan block box. You might have a fantastic blocks for a center and maybe some other blocks suitable for a round. If so, you are halfway through already.
I hope you will visit me over at Molly's Place. I have just finished a twelve month free Block of the Month of embroidered trees called Tree Time. Texas Boots are the theme for my next free BOM. I hope you will come on over and see what's going on. I'm open 24 hours a day 24/7.
I hope your holiday season is all you have dreamed of.
