Portland Modern Quilt Guild Medallion Pictures

2014 Portland Modern Quilt Guild Medallion
Last week I won the Portland Modern Quilt Guild (PMQG) Medallion Quilt in a raffle. This magnificent quilt was made by the 2014 PMQG officers: President Mary Mary Ann Morsette, VP Susanne Grey, Secretary Kelly Cole, Treasurer Lisa O'Conner, and Programs Director Cath Hall; with quilting by Nancy Stovall and binding by Chris Pera. The quilt is a new spin on a traditional medallion quilt, with modern fabrics, fresh colors, great quilting and a strong sense of graphic design.

the center block is an appliquéd Dresden Plate
The project was a year-long "medallion-along" and at the December meeting there were close to 20 quilts and tops made by fellow guild members who followed along with the project all year. Here are some more pictures of the Guild Medallion, with a full view of front and reverse sides and close-ups. Thank you, PMQG, for the amazing quilt. Enjoy the pictures!

the quilt is made of a wonderful selection of soft and bold colors
Nancy Stovall did a beautiful job with the long-arm quilting
the reverse side of the quilt includes a central column of pieced blocks

    1. I love the back, too. One of my favorite people, Cath Hall, worked on it. Cath was at the Charity Sew yesterday over at Modern Domestic PDX on Alberta. This guild has so many creative, talented people, and the great thing is it is introducing quiltmaking to a lot of new quilters.

  2. Love all the cheerful and warm colors!

  3. What a beautiful piece of art! ~ Bea @ The Not So Cheesy Kitchen
