2nd Pieced border for the Medallion Sewalong

This weekend I tackled my stack of little cut triangles to finish the second pieced border on Lori and Randi's Medallion Sewalong.  Ta Da....
Normally I like to work on sampler/block of the weeks. Because of my crazy schedule and life right now, a block a week is very doable. The downside is that it takes up to a year to finish. Well, life got a little crazier so I changed gears and went for instant gratification!  Well, not that instant... there was allot of piecing involved! :0) which I love. This second block is called Southern Belle. Here is a link to my first post. We have one more border to go with more fun applique! Lori will post it Tuesday. I am very happy to be caught up and in time for the Link-up party (for the first time)! Makes life just a little sweeter :0) Head over to Lori's "Link-up party" to see more quilts and progress on this sew along!

We had a wonderful weekend with a visit with Michael's family, JJ and Jennifer and the two most beautiful girls, Emma and Katelyn. We had so much fun. Emma turned 4 in April and Katelyn is 2. I quilted a pair of placemats for the girls and Emma helped. Then I made her a block, the same Southern Belle as I was working on for the medallion but in fabrics for her. It was fun to see her so interested in what I was doing on the sewing machine. They left this morning after we went out for breakfast. We miss them already, even Crystal, my German Shepard kept watch at the door for their return.

Ending with some pics of my Orchids that seem to be very happy as well, they liked the warm weather... sweet dreams!


  1. I love your quilt! The darker pieces toward the outside of the pieced block looks fantastic!!

    Wow! The orchids are beautiful!

  2. I love the black in this border. I like how it pops the other colors.
    The orchids are GORGEOUS! They look so happy.

  3. Oh boy a beautiful medallion quilts and gorgeous orchids does it get any better?
    Glad I dropped by for a peek :0)

    Happy Sewing

  4. Your medallion is looking great! I like the colors you are using.

  5. Your medallion quilt is looking AWESOME! Love this next border - congrats on being caught up. Such beautiful orchids - really stunning to see.

  6. I find it interesting to see what each person used for their pot fabric for the medallion. Yours is light and a stripe of sorts. Mine is a stripe but very dark.
