We are fortunate to have many talented members in our midst, one of whom is Debbie J. of A Quilter’s Table. Debbie is known amongst us at being a very talented and prolific quilter as you can see on her blog and instagram. We love when Debbie brings her work in to show us what she’s been working on! She’s been featured on several popular sewing blogs and we were thrilled when she agreed to help us finish up the year with a few round-ups of tutorials to finish your Seattle MQG medallion quilts. She will be covering quilt backs and basting this month, quilting in November, and binding and labeling in December. Without further ado, here’s Debbie.

So it’s time to start thinking about finishing up our BOM medallion quilts since the last border was posted in September. Here’s a little round up to get you going!
If you’re going for a pieced back, take inspiration from these . . .
Lee/Freshly Pieced made “Twin Quilts for Twin Girls” with paper-pieced blocks from her Vintage Quilt Revival, but what if you recreated your medallion’s center block and then surrounded it with negative space?
BGelhausen on flickr made this beautiful “Christy’s Quilt Back”. Envision a back for our medallion quilts echoing some of the elements on the front, mixed amongst those solids – wonky triangles, Raspberry Kiss blocks, flying geese – or a unique element you added to your own quilt.
As for basting that quilt – choose your method!
