My December ‘19 One Monthly Goal is to make 28 more blocks for the Medallion Lanterns queen-size quilt I am making for my stepson, Drew, using the Sew Kind of Wonderful Metro Medallion pattern. The color palette that I am using for this quilt is grey, taupe, black, silver, gold, and maroon. The background fabric is a luscious Cloud 9 Cirrus Solid in Shadow. The dark grey borders around the lanterns are made from Essex linen in Charcoal. The print fabrics for the lanterns are a combination of fabrics from my stash (some of which I wish I had bought more way back when!) as well as fabrics I’ve been ordering the past few months. I’m using 21 different fabrics two times each in this quilt. Below are the 14 blocks I have sewn so far:
I anticipate in January I will be sewing triangles on the corners of the blocks to form diamonds in the centers of the light grey lanterns (see link to pattern above to see what I’m talking about!), but I will wait to do that until I have all 42 blocks sewn for this quilt top.
