medallion baby quilt

It has been a busy month and I finally have a finish to share with you.  

This is the Medallion Baby quilt from Angela Pingel's book A Quilter's Mixology.  

I ordered this book when it was first released over a year ago.  It is full of beautiful quilts that use the drunkard's path block in new and exciting ways.  Angela introduces each quilt quite creatively making it a fun read as well as informative.
Each of these fabrics are from the new Curiosities line by Jeni Baker.  How cute are those bunnies?  

I trace and cut my templates the old fashioned way! 

I kept the curvy theme going and quilted this with swirls all over.  There is not one perfect swirl in there but together they work!  I used Quilter's Dream Cotton select loft batting.  Perfect for summer.

The back is also from the Curiosities line with an extra row of bunnies for width. 

I used those sweet bunnies on the binding,too.  I cut them on the bias so they wouldn't look so lined up.  I'm really happy with that decision.

I'm not sure if there is an "official" way to use directional prints here but I decided not to worry about it.  I didn't want a "one way" quilt so I simply made each quadrant read the same way.  So the bottom left is right side up - no matter how you look at it.  It works for my brain!

Hope you are enjoying your summer.  Have a great weekend!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.
