PMQG Medallion Progress

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.

Keep Stitchin'


  1. That looks wonderful. I've always felt the same way about square quilts, but some of them just need to be square!!!!

  2. I loooove this! I really like how the heart in the center pops. I've made several 60 inch square quilts. I find them to be the perfect lap size quilt for lounging on the couch with a good book or movie watching. They are harder to share, but I always want the quilt to be just for me anyway. ;)
