The second theme for our medallion quilts was "childhood." I had a few more elaborate ideas but then I came down with a summer cold and lost my steam. Instead I decided to add the pink check fabric because it reminds me of the dresses my mom used to make for me every summer - lots of pink gingham, polka dots, and girly stuff.
I am making good progress on my Abigail cardi. I put the sleeves on holders and have about 6" until the lower edging. Then the real test will come when I go back and work the sleeves.
In my cleaning and stash purging, I came across this little quilt. The center is made from three Sue Spargo blocks. Two years ago, I decided that they would make a good center for a small quilt. I added 9-patch and churn dash blocks. There were just a few places that needed some hand stitching so I did the this week. The backing is all pieced so this little gem is ready for some quilting.
First week of summer break - hope the rest of my summer is so fiber-full!
