Now, I have to say that actually this was the wrong choice of colour for this particular design. The colours are pretty but there is too much contrast between each colour in the thread which is distracting for the eye. It makes it more difficult to see how nice the medallion is. It does deserve to be remade in a plain colour instead.
And then this reminded me of another pattern I had in my "to-do" pile: Fox's Design called "Abigail". I realised when I looked at them that they must have been from the same design course as the starting centre is the same. I decided to try it in two shades of purple. As in Frakira's design, I like the fact that the four sides are not the same, makes it more interesting. My picots are quite small compared to Fox's and I think I prefer hers. So if I was making it again, I would go for longer picots to fill in the empty spaces a bit more.
Both designs are lovely. My only complaint is actually about the starting round which ends up like a hat (when I make it anyway!) and then needs to be flattened with pressing. So I would make the chains longer on that starting round. Otherwise, two very nice medallions.
Now I wonder what they would look like repeated...
