Medallion QAL First Border Linky

We are off and running with our medallion quilts!  Are you enjoying the process of making a quilt border by border?  Does it look as you imagined it or has your quilt already taken on a life of its own?

As a group, we have a stunning start to our medallion center pieces.  I have seen them pop up in blogs here and there, but I am REALLY looking forward to this linky party to pull them all together and see what you have created.  Between the last QAL post and this one, you should have created your 15 inch center block and then added one border to it.  If you are following Track 1, your quilt top should now measure about (ahem!) 24.5 inches unfinished.

Over the next two weeks we will piece and add our second border.  This border is 4 inches (finished) on all sides (in Track 1), bringing our top to 32 inches (finished).  Do take a bit of time to read the Catbird Quilts post discussing this border as Melanie gives a lovely overview of color, design, proportion, etc that you may find very helpful when choosing your next step.  Join me again on 5 March to link up your photos for your second border, to encourage one another and to draw inspiration from the others in the linky party.
