Hi, I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced this week again to show the start of my new Modern Medallion quilt!
I am SO excited to be back in one of Rachel of Stitched In Color's classes!! We started the Medallion Quilt last week and I wanted to get the first part ready very quickly so that I could do the hand-embroidery during a two week business trip to Europe (which I am on right now!)
The class is a 9 week class with blog tutorials posted every other week so that we have time to hand stitch in between. This quilt is worked from the center out, and there are different kinds of hand stitching involved.

The final border (so far) is a gray and blue print (on white). You can see a bunch of other fabrics I've pulled. Not sure which I will end up using, but all of the solids for sure!
