Blended Lizzy Mae's Medallion finished

 Yesterday I finished my blended version of Lizzy's Mae's Medallion, I love this quilt, Marsha McCloskey's Blended Quilts technique allows me to turn any pattern into my own version. I seldom use patterns but when I saw this one on a blog I knew I had to make it! Quilting with my Bernina 430 with the BSR on the Bernina Quilting Frame is feeling more comfortable to me now. Happy Quilting!

Quilting on Bernina Frame - Lizzie Mae's Medallion

I am slowly getting to know my Bernina Quilting Frame. This week I quilted Lizzie Mae's Medallion. I slowed my speed down and took my time instead of being a speed demon. Slowing down was very helpful. With this project I only broke 2 needles so that is improvement! My blended version of Lizzie Mae is a perfect complement to my living room so it will be mine! I have loved this design ever since I first saw it on Quilter Blogs, I think it was on Joanne's blog Thread Head.
