Medaillion Quilt

At the De Sampler we started a new course G, M and I. I already started with some embroidery which didn't make it easier to make  the first part... it is going to look a little bit like this, I am still styling the inner part, all the white paper has to be some very cute fabrics. Hopefully this easter weekend I have some time to make progress, will be continued....
