Club Medallion BOM: February Border

I can't believe Valentines is past already! I mean, where does the time go? I feel like it was JUST Christmas...and that's a distant memory for some. Well, January flew by for me. Probably because of all the Tula City Sampler craziness I was doing. Now that that's done, I can slow down and work on some other things at a nice relaxing pace, right? Haha...probably not. I'm just not built that way. I like to work on one project at a time unless it's a Block of the Month! 

Which brings me to the Club Medallion BOM February Border! I received the instructions from Sew Lux Fabric last Monday the and had the border all sewn up Tuesday. See what I mean? No wasting time over here. It just took a while to get photos. Only 1 more month to go!

I went with some great blues and a nice black & white sketchy background. I really like what the blue does to the quilt. In case you're wondering, I don't ever have a plan with a quilt. I just wing it. I never plan out my colors or draw in my little notebook what the finished quilt will look like. I just take it as it comes. I'm quirky like that I guess.

  21. I love pieced borders, so also medallion quilts. Your blue and gray border looks very good! I do plan on graph paper--but I also allow myself o change my mind as the quilt emerges.

  26. oh. my. gosh! I absolutely LOVE how this is turning out! and you know me- I'm a one project at a time kind of girl, and I like to work "pedal to the metal" to finish it. so I definitely sympathize with you there!

    I'm so glad you shared at Needle and Thread Thursday!
