Last month, I introduced you to my version of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month Medallion Quilt. Since then, I have successfully added the March border and the April border. As previously mentioned, the March border gave me some trouble, between my uncertainty about the wonkiness of the triangles, and my inexperience with inset seams. I worked on it little by little until it was done, but don’t look at the back! The corner seams are lumpy and the seams are less than 1/4 inch in a few spots, so that the points of the triangles were not chopped off. Still, I like the overall effect and am glad that I persisted. I was relieved when the April border was revealed, because I really wanted something simple this month. For some reason, my quilt was smaller than it was supposed to be, so I used 2.25 inch strips instead of 2 inch strips. I can’t wait to try my hand at next month’s border!
