Finished Aviatrix Medallion Quilt

I know what you are thinking…”it’s about time this quilt top is finished!”. I am so happy to finally have my Aviatrix Medallion quilt finished, because it kind of feels like I’ve been plodding along forever.

Medallion quilts are a pretty fun interval project…something to sew on off and on between other quilts  and that is how I have done this: one border at a time, maybe once a month or so.

The Aviatrix pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman (buy her patterns Here from Canton Village Quilt Works). I made some changes to the  design to fit my taste, as well as some necessary adjustments to keep measurements accurate so the borders would fit.

I love all the fabrics and colors in this and how cheerful and fresh the finished top is. I started out with fabric prints by Vanessa Christensen (Moda) and used those as a jumping off point for colors throughout. I love that this was made with so many prints from my stash…the only piece I bought was the gray pin dot for the X and Plus blocks, so I would have enough to do them all the same.

This top is Huge! close to 80″ square, so it wasn’t easy getting pictures (-: I am going to have a local long-arm quilter do this one for me…I just don’t have it in me (or time right now) to quilt it myself.
