Having finished 2 UFO’s this year and completing an Australian quilt for my youngest daughter, I decided I would like to make a wholecloth quilt. Being a machine quilter this is one of my greatest passions.
I selected some beautiful shot cotton from my stash, this fabric was given to me by my friend Phil Thomas several years ago and I love it. The photograph below does not do it justice. First of all I had to mark the quilt.
I have chosen to use a repeating medallion design which I drew up myself last year with a view to making a wholecloth quilt.
You will see 2 different designs in the medallion and each will be used separately in the quilt. My goal for today was to mark and baste the quilt which I managed. My next goal is to select thread and quilt the major lines. More to follow in a few days.
