Scrappy Medallion

This quilt, Garden Medallion had been on my Pinterest board for ages. I love the huge log cabin made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics and always hoped one day to make my own. Yesterday I did!
The idea to extend the length of the wide strips with patchwork was perfect for my scrapwork collection. I had flying geese, four patches, nine patches, and HSTs ready to use. I have been hoarding KF fabrics for a while and recently felt I needed to add a few more, eek! and start using them up. Some of these are new. 
Here's a hint. At Craftsy one can order kits of KF fabric and get lots of variety at a lower price. I did that with this kit.


Scrappy Medallion, 55" square, machine pieced top.

 I had to decide what to use as my center and chose a Bear's Paw block made from my charm squares and a Waverly dot. Then the fun began, choosing the lights and darks to build the Log Cabin.


 Here are some of my pieced scrap blocks. Their size determined the width of the strip I cut.

The whole thing just came together in no time, and I think I may have to do another with a different setting. I am having a blast!

  2. What a beauty Melody - stunning. I like the red version but love yours! l'm a great collector of KF Collective fabrics, they work so well together and I've found with hand dyes and batiks.
