Mrs Vigors Medallion

Kerry emailed about the pattern pieces "A, B & C" on page 28 for this quilt.  I've had a look and there is a little overlap of piece A over piece B on the sketch but I feel this is insignificant. My preference would be to trim the excess off piece A. If you are photocopying the pattern and paper piecing it, remember to cut your pieces inside the marked lines to allow for the thickness of the fabrics.
Detail of the corner cut-out at the bottom of the quilt, made for a 4-poster.  I am using this quilt on a queen-sized, black iron bed at our farm at the moment and the centre, including the wide blue border, fits perfectly on the bed top and the country colours suit the setting!

I paper-pieced the central mandala and foundation-pieced the circle of triangles, and then appliqued these to the background.
Detail of the top section, which doesn't have the cut-outs.  If you are not making this quilt for a 4-poster bed, you could finish the other corners in the same way.


  1. just beautiful, love the close ups, always love seeing fabric choices made by others.

  2. Beautiful! I love knowing how you paper pieced, foundation pieced and appliqued the central mandala!

  3. So beautiful.
    Liebe Grüße Grit
