WIP Wednesday

This week I have only been working on my Marcelle Medallion quilt. I adore how it is looking, and I am only just now working on the triangle border. I can't wait to get more of the borders put together and on this thing.

Marcelle Medallion center

I paper pieced the center medallion with this amazing tutorial from Penny Poppleton. It came together so easily, and I didn't have to attempt Y seams! Hooray for avoiding something difficult.

Pearls won :) #mmqal #marcellemedallion

I was conflicted on which fabric to choose for the 1st border, but I love the way the Pearl Bracelets look. I think I might have a thing for Lizzy House fabrics :)

Sewed a test row of my triangle boarder and it actually looks right! Saving the real thing for tomorrow. #mmqal #marcellemedallion #selfishsewingweek

Last night before I passed out from exhaustion, I did a test strip of border 2 with some extra triangles I cut out. I was pretty shocked when it actually looked like it is supposed to. I hoping to get the triangle borders pieced and sewn on the medallion today. Fingers crossed that William takes a long nap :)
