Last year I was approached by the wonderful Beth
to submit an idea for a book they were working on. The process of writing a book is long and I have so much respect for Beth and Janice after getting a little glimpse of the process - I could never do it - but the book is amazing!
Here it is: The Modern Medallion Workbook
. The best thing about the book is that it's a workbook, which means that you could either follow the patterns or use the patterns and techniques in the book to create your own quilt. It is so much more versatile than your average book and I will be using it as a reference and resource often.
When I made the quilt I was a little obsessed with Allison Glass' new (at the time) Sun Print and Clover Sunshine fabrics and they directly inspired the design of the quilt. I combined them with coordinating prints and love how happy and colorful the quilt turned out.
I kept the quilting pretty simple and did my favorite diamond crosshatch over the entire quilt. The finished quilt has a great, soft texture and doesn't compete with the happy colors.
