A Fall Quilt Finish

I have another finished quilt.  This quilt is made from the Edyta Sitar pattern called Medallion.  I hand applique'd the center and machine pieced the rest.

I machine quilted this on my Bernina.  I started out by echo quilting around the center applique'.  Then I studied the quilts in Edyta's books Friendship Strips and Scraps and Friendship Triangles and many of her pieced quilts are quilted with an all over free motion quilting pattern.  And, I can do a curvy line by machine much easier than I can do a straight line.

For the inner border I did a free motion swirl, and on the outer border I just followed the design in the border print going around the teardrop design inside and along the outside edge and then through the stems and leaves. 

It is quilted and bound and ready for fall! 

I hope you are all finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for visiting!
