Combining WIPS - Scrappy Trippy Medallion

I started sewing a medallion quilt after being inspired by this one at Lily's Quilts.  The pattern is from Sarah Fielke's book, Hand Quilted with Love.


I added a green border this morning.  While pressing it, I was suddenly reminded of my Scrappy Trip blocks that were sitting neglected in the drawer.  So naturally, I had to go dig them out.

I think once again I am going to go ahead and combine a couple projects into one.  Now I'm having fun playing around to figure out what border to do next.  I think I'll add a border of Chicopee fabric and then scrappy flying geese.

Despite the fresh snow cover outside this morning, I am pretending it is spring, with an explosion of color in my living room.  We are supposed to get a bunch more snow tonight.  I know this is Minnesota, but still snow in April is pretty ridiculous.

Linking to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
