I've finished my contribution to round 3 of the Modern Medallion Round Robin project! The theme behind this quilt is the Jersey Shore and the ocean in general - hence the beautiful blue and turquoise fabrics.
When the quilt came to me, I thought that it could use some more negative space and also a weightier border - to match the density of the center diamond block. So I added the 2.5" white border and the broken blue border. Now the quilt is off the 4th participant. As I was packaging it up, I realized that with the completion of round 3, the quilts are half-way done!
You can read more about the group and past projects here (and see my center medallion block here).
My grass border & butterfly corner blocks have been added to the Fox Quilt, and now it is time to pass him along to the next quilter in my modern quilt round robin. For more information on this guy, please see this post.
I designed the paper-piece pattern for the butterflies, and went through several versions before I found a simple butterfly that I felt was just right.
I can't wait to see what comes my way from the next rotation of the round robin group!
Today I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday.
