Meet the Desert Blooms Medallion.
I love that squash blossom block as the center square.
Since the pattern is called the "Desert Blooms Medallion," I tried to stick with a desert-y color scheme which was quite uncomfortable. But sometimes it is good to work with uncomfortable colors.
The most uncomfortable part was the peach. I made the peach flying geese and hung them in my sewing room for two weeks before I sewed them on. I'm still not sure if they were the best choice but I grew to like them.
I kept the quilting pretty simple with some crosshatching. The lines are 3" apart. Since there are a lot of small-ish pieces in the quilt, I wanted the quilting to keep it drape-y.
