The Keystone Medallion is now quilted, bound and labeled.  An official finish.

Finished hanging

This picture shows it hanging.  Although it is square, I had a positioning problem when photographing – a cramped angle --  so it looks all wonky.  It finished measuring 27” square.  Mr. QBG loves this one because of the colors and movement.  Quilted in a simple hanging diamond pattern, I used dark monofilament thread in the needle and a 50 weight cotton thread in the bobbin to match the backing. 

Now I think my red and white quilt design needs tackling.

I have a 6" finished test block made so there are only 19 more blocks to go.   However, I need to go to Country Stitches quilt shop to see if I can find some more red fabric that closely harmonizes with the red I want to use from my stash and to finish using up a gift certificate from this shop.  Won’t that be fun?
