I had a great Christmas and now it's time to relax and get down to some serious quilting. I've spent the last few days getting to know my new Bernina, which is just awesome.
Lets get back to the quilt documentation. Today we have another medallion, the last in the series, that is completed. Number 2 still needs to be quilted. See Country Stars Medallion and Elephant Walk.
All 4 quilts in this series, uses the same pattern, except for the central 12” block, border #7 made up of 6” blocks and of course different colour schemes.
