School House Quilt

A few weeks ago I showed you my Baltimore Album quilt.  This one was made from a left over block.  The block was missing a little on one side so had to be cut down to be symmetrical.  I decided to use it in a medallion style quilt.  The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  It is 39 inches square.  It is now hanging in my living room.
The center is quilted with cross-hatches. 
You can see some of the feathers in the yellow border in this photo.  The outer border is done in cables.
Here is part of the back to show the quilting.

Happy New Year to you all!
I hope it will be a blessed one.

Marlene, it was an incomplete block which I had to "resize" so it would be centered. I love this block, too.
