Fruit Basket Medallion

Need an inspiration quilt?
See "Chintz Quilts From The Poos Collection"
pg 140-144  Hint:  It is cut apart and re-configured
I love medallion quilts.
When I saw the Fruit Basket Medallion panel was reproduced in three sizes I had to order!

I wanted to share my wash test with you.  The photo in this blog post is one of the panels Machine laundered, normal cycle in Tide HE - warm wash, cold rinse THREE times.  I was abusive - including it in three different loads of laundry.  I have no intention of treating a quilt that way.  I am impressed with the retention of the vibrant color!
Now I can get on with some quilt plans...

You can order the panels HERE.
Consider a large one and four smalls for four corner blocks.  Oh...the possibilities....would you cut it up or leave it whole?

Have a great week,


  1. Ooooooh, nice! If I were quilting, I would jump at this. lol! Nice that the colors survived all that abuse!

  2. I'm glad to hear this. I've had my panel for months and have a plan but haven't gotten to it yet. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Gosh, you might be considered a fabric abuser! But it's nice to hear that the printing stood up to what you dished out!

  4. It's lovely...reminds me of Thanksgiving in a way :)

  5. Glad to hear the colors hold up to washing and rewashing. I have the small panel but have no idea how to use it in a quilt yet. I do like looking at it though.....just beautiful!

  6. pretty panel! Thanks for sharing your prewash process.

  7. I bought one in every size. Now they are begging for attention from me. Can't wait to oblige!

  8. Thanks for passing on your washing success - a great recommendation and a lovely panel!
