Mini Medallion Quiltalong - part 2

A couple of weeks ago I started a mini medallion quiltalong through Clover and Violet. They issued the first border pattern at the weekend and I made up my border on Sunday.

Mini Medallion Quilt a long - centre + Border 1
I'm please with it, but there is quite a lot of teal in mine at the moment, so I'll add more of the of the yellow and white on the next border to even it out. It's strange doing a mystery pattern like this and not being able to plan the colour placements.

The best bit about this quiltalong is that it's made me join Instagram so I can see what the other people's blocks look like. If you're on Instagram it's #minimedallionqal, and I'm @wendysquiltsandmore.

Here's a link back to my first post about this quiltalong- click here.

Centre only

In about 24 hours I will be doing a special introductory post because I'm part of the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. Be sure to check back then, because you'll probably find out some things you never knew about me!

The not being able to plan part of mystery quilts would kill me!
I love the blues! As Bess noted, it is beachy.

This is looking great! I LOVE your fabric choices. Blue, sea green and yellow are a match made in heaven.

Looking great Wendy. i so wish I had time to sew along with this one. I may have to do it retrospectively - which, granted, will take the mystery out of it :)
