Wowwza this thing is getting big. It is now 60 1/2 inches by 60 1/2 inches square. I have always thought square quilts are a duck of a different color. I wonder what the point of a large square quilt is??? It would be odd to turn this square medallion into a rectangle at the last minute so it will remain square. It has such symmetry it will need to be square but it still seems a bit odd to me. Have you ever made a large square quilt before? This is a first for me but as it is something that the whole group of modern quilters at Portland Modern Quilt Guild are doing, I am going to assume it is going to be okay and not just plain weird having such a large square quilt. I guess it will make a great picnic blanket, right???
Better start planning a darker background for the back of this quilt if that is it's future.
Anyhoo now that I have that off my chest here is a peak at my top as of today. I am finally caught up on it. Really like how it is coming together. I think it certainly does have a bit of the modern look in it. Loving the black and white. Heck loving it all!!!
My quilt model was a little too short and her arms just way too short but you get the gist of it and I am lucky to have gotten a clear picture at all since she couldn't stop laughing.
