WIP Wednesday: Central Block Done!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Boom! Center block of my Aviatrix Medallion quilt is done. I am so ready for the next step!

I was worried about how all the gray half-square triangles would look together, and whether they would work overall. But I have to say, I really love it. I'm glad I threw that gray Cotton + Steel print in with the solids. Adds a little pop of interest.

    Your Center Block looks amazing, by the way - I can't wait to see how the rest of it comes together!

  17. I love your center block! I would like to make this quilt, also, but need to finish a few UFOs before I start anything else. I will enjoy your Aviatrix journey!
