WIP Wednesday - Medallion Magic QAL Update

I completed the next step in the Medallion Magic QAL hosted by Leanne @ Devoted Quilter.

You can see my centre star block here.   Kona Nightfall, Royal, Tangerine, Torch, Orange, School Bus, and Tiger Lily all look great together.

The April instructions were to add two borders:  a simple solid border and then a not-so-simple border.  it started with sewing skinny strips together.  The strip set was cut into another skinny strip to be sewn between two background pieces.

And then we had to make 1.5-inch HSTs.  😢  

Those tiny HSTs were turned into a 4.5-inch pinwheel.  After the first one, I was tempted to ditch the other three and do something different for the corners.  But I continued on.....

It turned out great...if I do say so myself.  😊

If you're interested, there's still time to join in.  Head over to Devoted Quilter to get the pattern and the details.
