quilting is a process

Making a quilt is all about process - so as Ive been working on my next round for the friendship medallion I thought I would document the process....except that I did leave out the first step - pieces of quite lovely fabric!
Next step - cut said lovely fabric up into the required pieces/sizes

Next join these pieces up as stated in the pattern - hopefully you cut out enough to do this - I was 6 x 1 1/2" squares short so had to cut more when I got to that part!

Next join these "bits" into blocks and then into rows and then onto the centre block
Easy!

free friendship medallion quilt

Thanks to flourishing palms I have started making this free medallion quilt from patchwork pumpkin
It came with a few strings attached. They are:

1. You are not allowed to purchase any fabrics for the quilt top. You must use your stash!

2. You may swap fabrics with your friends.

3. Show us your quilt centre to get the next border instructions. No proof? No pattern. No exceptions!

Here's my centre block - have emailed them my "proof" will now await the next round of instructions!
