When the Modern Quilt Guild Ireland decided to do a QAL this year I was happy to join along.
Medallion quilts wouldn't be on the top of my list of quilts to do but I thought that I would give it a go and be yet another quilt top I will start.
We are to head off and find some Medallion quilts that inspire us and make a mosaic of our favourites at our flickr group and find a few ideas on what we would like to make.
I have found some amazing medallion quilts and lots with very detailed centres, but thought that I would move away from the star in the middle and try something different. I do have the pattern template and sewing foot to sew curves and thought that maybe a flower from Retro Flower quilt would look nice in the middle ( yes another QAL that I never got around to doing)

Then I came across this block for the middle in one of my many books.

Yes the ideas are changing all the time and although there will be lots of flying geese, I seem to find more and more little ideas for framing my flower. Although I do want to incorporate a few curved blocks into the edging too.
And then I found this block.
I wouldn't know where to start with this block, maybe I should shelve this for another project.
