Medallion Quilt Top Done!

With classes all done I finally was able to get working on the Marcelle Medallion Quilt again.
For those of you who don't know about this awesome quilt it is from Liberty Love
A book by Alexia Marcelle Abegg.
It's a great book with 25 must do sewing projects including quilts, clothing, and bags.
There are even a few projects for the hubby and Fido too!

At first I thought I would do each boarder in a different fabric collection/color.
But, I just fell in love with the way Shelburne Falls, Pearl Bracelet, and Architextures
worked together.
So why quit a good thing?
 I just kept going with it and used up all my stash of that great
 crosshatch from architextures :(

I thought that the cross block border would be my least favorite out of the whole quilt.  
Turns out it was my favorite!
Of coarse as soon as I laid it out Sophie had to come test it out.

As I was attaching the last boarder it dawned on me that now I have to figure out how to quilt it.
oh no!  What to do?

Overall I really loved piecing this quilt.  I was shocked how forgiving the piecing was.  There is more than one seam that didn't quit match up and even a pearl bracelet piece or two that is even sewn in wrong side up. shhhh...don't tell anybody.

While I'm trying to figure out how I want to quilt this thing I'm preparing for the local monthly craft show in town.  I'm trying to figure out what I would like to make for it.  I have a few quilts that I will sell but I need more than just a few quilts.
I made a few bags like these...

Have you ever sold at an art market? 
What types of items sold the best for you? Or what have you bought that was a must have ?
I would really appreciate any input!!!


  1. that is absolutely gorgeous! I love patterns that are forgiving!

  2. I wish I had some helpful advice. Every show I've ever done has been different. It seems like something that sold really well at one show will not even get a glance at the next one. Good luck!

  3. Your quilt is outstanding! The colors ARE great. I do love the pouches...if I were at a market, I'd for sure buy one or two or three of them!! Looks to me like you have the golden touch with all you make. Go for it!

  4. Pretty work. I love the purple architextures border.

  5. My mom used to do craft fairs all the time. She always tried to work with whatever holiday was coming up and it seemed to work well for her. Maybe some quilted ipad/notebook cases in guy colors and styles? Just a thought. Love your medallion quilt. I'd really like to get that book, it's on my wish list :)

  6. Those bags will sell like hot cakes!! They're gorgeous and funky!! Love the bright and colourful fabrics!! Good luck at the market.....hope you make a motza!!

  7. Your medallion quilt is beautiful - wonderful fabric/colour choices. Good luck with the market :)


Thank you for your comment. They are so important to me and it's nice to know there is someone out there who is interested in similar things. I will do my best to respond to each one. Have a great day!
