A Four Year Month

A really busy workshop today - everyone working on their lovely Yoko Saito Quilts and three new starters so there was a real buzz.  With 12 of us eating in the kitchen at lunchtime there's a lot to clear up so this will be a very short post.

So, I should have said everyone but me was working on their Yoko Saito quilts...... I was working on my Medallion.  And, I am pleased to announce that I have finally (very nearly) finished month 4 of my Medallion Quilt.  This may not seem such a big deal, but I started on the Medallion course with Lynne Johnson in 2012 - and then stalled big time.  My plan was to use old, but loved, dresses so it would be very traditional, but as the months, and then years rolled by, and people finished quilt after quilt, I became very uninspired. Month 4 became impossible to finish.  I even started month 5 in the hopes that that would gee me on.  It didn't.  Until last week.  And then yesterday I managed this:

It was very much a matter of completion over perfection, and something has gone very wrong with the measurements, but I am so pleased and can almost imagine it on my bed.
Onwards and Upwards!
