Round Two

Lots of cutting, line-drawing, pinning, stitching, ironing, repeating tonight while following the election news from home. I loved staying up late on election night when I was younger - even in the 80s when we used to know who was going to win before we went to bed. Now that I'm teaching about the election in one of my courses, I'm calling it homework. I lost all credibility as a second grade ESL teacher in 2000 when I told my students that we would know who the new president was the next morning. Maybe I can redeem my credibility this time around.


Sorry that the contrast isn't very good between the blocks and my floor! Round two of the medallion quilt will probably be followed by another thin green line of like-colored squares. I'm working on a large flock of flying geese at the moment - they will play into several upcoming rows. I think I'm going to separate everything with these thin lines of like-colored squares - either green or gold - and will use the white in every other row of blocks. That's the plan for now at least. :)

I really like the way your quilt is turning out. The colors are great! Gold for the next border is my choice, not that you asked.

oh this meddalion is looking so very rich. I'm amazed at how well the fabric blend with your floor... maybe a floorcloth is being called for? :-)

Looking good. Color choices are excellant. I love watching election results also. Last presidental I stayed up until 2 am then had to be to work by 9 am. I must say I was tired that day.

It's fun watching your quilt take deep breaths of life each day! (I'm still up watching the election results--wrote about it in my blog.)

That medallion is looking sooo good! No wonder you can't stop working on it.

Still looking very beautiful. I understand that you can't stop playing with the rounds.

This is a nice way to let a quilt 'evolve'. I don't think you'll get bored with all the different blocks to make.
And like I said, obsession can be a Good Thing....

Nice begining on the medallion... Stay flexible.

My own medalion was going to have this and that and some of those too - it ended up with far fewer rounds that I first planned....
