Schoenrock Cross #2

Given the fact that my first quarter FAL list has been a no-go (although mostly due to the bush fire appeal, so I'm really not phased about it), I've decided to carry them all over to the next quarter. And start something new. I'm definitely a hopeless case when it comes to shiny new projects ;o)

This quilt has been in my head for a long time, but I didn't have a clue what fabric I wanted to use. Or what block I wanted to use at the centre for that matter. And then I had a light bulb moment over the weekend - I pulled a giant stack of fabric out and began playing. This is the mess stack I'm using (horrible badly lit photo!!):


It's destined to be a medallion style quilt (yep, jumping on that bandwagon too). No real idea where it's heading really, it's a making it up as I go along project. So it may end up awesome, or really really ugly. I'm really hoping it'll be a not-ugly quilt though, as I'm using a tonne of very treasured favorite fabric. The centre block is done, and I love it. I used Leila's Schoenrock Cross pattern again (love this block so much!), and bordered it to bring it up to 12.5".


I have other priorities to work on this week, but once they're done I'll be back to this one. And I really can't wait :o)

Lovely block - and such a great idea to use it for a Medallion quilt too!

I am intrigued by this block, great job by the way! Schoenrock is a family name and after seeing your block I tried to do a little "sleuthing" on it...yup, I did not get far, however I did find that the secondary pattern created by setting several together is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing and for waving the proverbial "bright shiny quilt" in front of me!!! B-)

This is lovely! I really like the mix of fabrics. I might have to also give this a try. :)
