Sawtooth Medallion


Sawtooth Medallion  is a pattern from the book  
A Treasury of Scrap Quilts by Nancy J Martin.  
It was one of my first attempts at needle turn appliqué.


I finished the top at least 6 years ago if not longer and put it away until I became a better long arm  quilter.  Well, I have finally figured out you don’t become a better quilter by absorption or by buying books and tools.  
You actually need practice.


Having finally come to this conclusion I decide to just get busy and quilt some of the many tops I have stored away.
So just pretend you are on galloping horse when you look at this one.
Happy stitching,
Nancy

  9. I don't need to pretend to be on a galloping horse. It looks better than the machine quilting I do.

  13. Pretty blue scrap quilt. I hear ya on the 'get busy.' Sometimes I should be sewing instead of reading quilt blogs. How did you like needleturn?

  14. Nancy, it's wonderful! I know what you mean about that galloping horse, but you did a great job! I've had my longarm for 7 years and I still consider myself a beginner, but my friends are trying to convince me otherwise.
