The Goose and A Medallion Center

A much easier applique bock this time for "Dearest Boy".  A goose.  The block has some touches of embroidery to outline the wink and define the bow.



The pattern designer, Jean Cerbone,  is again able to sell the pattern set for "Dearest Boy".  It is available through Etsy here.  The price is $36.00 which, compared to some album style quilt patterns, is very reasonable.

Visit Cathy and Julie to see their blocks.

I saw a nine patch quilt with a medallion center that struck my fancy.  I decided to give my own version a whirl.  I chose a block from "Quilting the Garden" by Blackbird Designs.  This particular block is called "Spring Awakenings".  The block drawing in the book was to be enlarged 250% and not on point.  I enlarged it 210% and did it on point.  All the nine patches are done and waiting for everything to be sewn together.  Here is my applique block.


I'll be stitching today.  How about you?

The goose is too adorable. Nice stitching on the wing and bow.

I love your flower block. Look forward to seeing it with the 9 patches. Will is be a table topper or incorporated into a runner or quilt?

Love your sweet goose! I'm looking forward to seeing how your medallion grows--it will be a fun project. I have more gardening to do this morning, but will be doing some stitching of my own later on--at least that's the plan--lol!

This applique block is so pretty and the goose is adorable!

just working on an EPP starflower here after weeding outdoors. I suppose the fact that weeds grow faster than flowers can go back to "the fall" in Genesis in our Bible lol ....

Wow, just love that sweet little Goose for Dearest Boy! And your Basket quilt block is beautiful. A perfect block to represent Spring.

Love your goose! Was looking for the wink and realize I think it should read wing...although I guess a goose could wink at you also.

Your centre for you next quilt is lovely! Love the nest and eggs tucked into the corner.
