Medallion Lantern Blocks Completed!

My main goal for December (besides trying to keep my sanity!) was to finish my Metro Medallion blocks for the queen-size Medallion Lantern quilt I’m making for my stepson, Drew. This project has consumed my life lately! And it’s all I’ve been blogging about lately. I promise that will change soon! My friend, Roseanne, with Home Sewn By Us is hosting this week’s Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday linky party. I am thrilled to join TGIFF today as I have FINALLY finished all the blocks for Drew’s Medallion Lantern quilt including sewing on the gold triangles to form diamonds in the grey lanterns (please see my To-Do Tuesday #18 Weekly Progress Update post for all more details). Diann with Little Penguin Quilts commented that the diamonds look like lights in the lanterns. I love that description!

I have sewn the blocks together for Row 1 which is shown in the middle of the pic below. I have placed the blocks for the other rows above and below the sewn row (not in any particular order).

The photo above doesn’t show my favorite gold and silver blocks that I shared in my post on Tuesday. Here they are one more time in the bottom row below:

I will also be linking up to Elm Street Quilts: One Monthly Goal when Patty opens that linky party next week.

    Hi Mary! Oh yes, I definitely agree with the silver and gold blocks being my favorite as well. AND, I agree with Diann about the pretty corner triangles adding the light from the lanterns. Good job on getting this OMG project blocks all together and nearly a quilt top as well. What a great way to end the year. Thank you for linking up with TGIFF. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
