Medallion Repeated

I carried on making the little medallions.  They are relaxing to make with just one shuttle, and when I don't forget to add my magic loops - which I still do regularly! - , they are quite quick to complete too.  I love working out patterns in one pass.

Don't know where I'm going with this yet.  But here is a set of nine.


Doesn't look quite square but I think it's a bit of distortion from my photo.
... or maybe I need to block it.

It's interesting that a cross forms between the motifs.  I tried attaching them differently but this seemed to me to be the best way.  I wondered about filling in the spaces with something else... but I don't know yet.  It's also interesting that when the medallions are attached on all four sides (as in the very middle one), they end up looking square instead of round.

I've added another few more since this photo.  And I've also written the pattern for the motif if anyone might be interested?

Best wishes,
Frivole

  2. It is interesting how the middle motif seems square now or more obviously squared. I would love the pattern as I have several bags of that fabric and would love to put the motif with one. What size thread did you use and how big did it turn out?

  3. It is beautiful with several attached together - thanks for all of your experimenting! The square appearance on the center one is interesting, as are the open spaces. Love this motif either by itself, or attached together!

  4. Very pretty motif. The optical illusion of the center motif looking square is fascinating. Would love the pattern please
