whew! my Marcelle Medallion quilt top is done

This baby has been a real labour of love!
Three months ago, my friends Lisa and Sarah taught me how to foundation paper piece. I thought "if I can get the center medallion for the Marcelle Medallion quilt done right surely I can tackle the rest!" Well guess what friends? IT HAPPENED! I learned so many new skills with this quilt top, improved my precision piecing immensely and even spent a little quality time with my seam ripper along the way but it's done!

details:
Pattern, Marcelle Medallion by Alexia Marcelle Abegg (from her Liberty Love book)
fabric, 9 different solids, sorry I did not get the names of each
finished size, 60 inches square

Off it goes to the quilter. I have to say, I'm quite happy with this one!
