Desert Blooms Medallion variations || Quilting from Every Angle

Hello!  I am happy to share with you today the variations of Desert Blooms Medallion made by some lovely and talented ladies.   Please make sure to check them out!

All photography is done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

What is really interesting and nice to see is other people's interpretations of your patterns.  I love seeing a design of mine in a color way I normally would not gravitate towards because it helps me to see how many varieties the design can take, and maybe, it will one day encourage me to branch out of my own comfort zone.  Sometimes, people see things in a way you never could have imagined.  I think that is why I love quilting and art so much.

Quilting from every Angle is a book that shows my love for design.  It is filled with unique and graphic quilts.   I really wanted quilt designs that could appeal to younger and older generations, but my main focus was to grab the attention of quilters who loved graphic design and modern day textile art.  Although all of my quilts are rooted in traditional piecing and shapes, the combination I did with these things makes the patterns stand out and are very graphic.  I hope that you enjoy the quilt patterns I am sharing with you this week.

Inspired by the southwest and drawn to the beautiful fabrics by Cotton and Steel, I knew I wanted to make a medallion quilt for the book.  The design lend itself for great fussy cutting.  I love working border by border, and I think you will find this one fun too.  This is great for advanced beginners.  The diamonds are paper pieced, but you can opt to make them another way of your choosing.  Trim your hsts to 2 1/2"!
