I'm so happy with the finished Aviatrix Medallion Quilt!
I made this quilt using 25 Kona Solid fat quarters, plus Kona White for the block details and Essex yarn-dyed Steel for the background. The finished quilt is 80" x 80".
The pattern for this quilt, which will be in my shop at the beginning of April, will describe how to make the quilt with 25 fat quarters, or using scraps. (A scrappy version of the quilt might look something like this quilt, which I'm still working on.)
I'm also excited to tell you about my new partnership with Robert Kaufman. They will be selling fat quarter bundles and other precut packages of the Kona Solids I used for this project. Yay! (I'll post more about this soon.)
Because there's so much going on in this quilt top, I kept my quilting and quilt back really simple. The quilting is an allover pattern of meandering boxes that I free-motion quilted on my Janome 1600p QC.
The quilt back is Carolyn Friedlander's Widescreen (108" wide quilt back fabric) in gray. It was a little crazy for me to make a quilt back out of a single piece of fabric, but it certainly made things easy. I'm also happy to have a subtle bit of print on the back of this all-solids quilt.
I'm already working on a related quilt that I hope to be able to show you next week!
