OMG: Flower Basket Medallion Border Finish

Early in the month I had posted for my One Monthly Goal ( OMG )  that I would like to get at least 1/3  – 1/2 way through this border. At the beginning I had the basket and stems sewn down.

I am happy to report that I managed to finish the second border section for my Flower Basket Medallion project.

As a reference, here is the first border that I finished up at the end of December.


These are to go around a center that is from a Kim McClean design, though the borders are my own.

This center was finished up in early December.

These two finished borders will go along the sides. As to what I will do for the top and bottom I am not sure yet. I’d like them to be similar but a bit different.

As to 17 in 2017 this month ( I actually had 20 on my list ) along with working on this border,  I appliqued another airship propeller block and some little baskets in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month, finished tying and binding the Gradient quilt, and progressed a bit futher on my current quilt in the hoop. The Gradient quilt has gone home with my youngest son.

    I love you other projects, too. Those little baskets are a big temptation…

    I’m a long time fan of anything “Early American” looking – just love the basket project. The borders are excellent – design, colors, workmanship – cannot wait to see it all completed!
    While reading, it occurred to me that having several (or even 20!) projects going makes the process more relaxing and fun. I sit here with one at a time, getting tired of looking at the same old thing, just itching to switch from my current pink to a navy Log Cabin I want to do next – then I’ll whine that I’m ready for pretty pastels again!

  14. Dawn says:

    Great borders! Love all the colorful scrappy happy projects!

  15. Kyle says:

    Lots of sewing going on at your house. The two appliqués borders are beautiful and will look perfect with the center medallion. Great job on your 17 UFO’s in 2017.

  16. Jill says:

    Lovely. You made great progress. Envious of your clothesline. Great place to hang and display projects in the natural light.

  17. Doreen JOHNSON says:

    Another beautiful border. I like that the fabrics are different in each one. This is going to be a lovely quilt.

  18. Elaine says:

    Deb that is just beautiful! You are so friggin’ talented!

  20. Karen in Breezy Point says:

    Your applique looks great–love all the colorful leaves! I have 20 on my list too, and don’t seem to be making a lot of progress–I hope March works out better than February–lol!

  21. Susan says:

    Great job! I really like the autumn colors, maybe even more than the first border. You are doing a lot of work on these, and it will be so worth it. Now you have me wondering about the corners!

  22. I wonder if your neighbours can see your finished borders flapping in the wind, that would give me such a kick if I was them?! It looks like your year is off to a flying start, although hopefully, your beautiful quilting did not fly off the line!
    With love
