Another border........

The next border on the medallion is 2.5" squares.  I had some trays of Kaffe fabric squares so I pulled all of the light ones and sewed 2 of the 4 borders.  I have a combination of pale yellow and white backgrounds so far and this group looks more white.  I'm going to look at it again today and decide if it needs to be a better mix of white and yellow.  I also have to decide if multi-fabric is the way to go or if I need to just choose 4 fabrics and repeat them over and over.  There are lots of decisions on a medallion quilt.

This is a cool quilt to watch grow.

When I see a medallion quilt, it always seems very unified -- one thing -- because of the single center of symmetry. I'm enjoying the border decisions each as their own separate thing.

Are you designing as you go, or is there a master pattern?

Each of the decisions you have so far are good ones. Keep on keeping on.
