There are 528 different fabrics in this quilt, no repeats. 400 in the centre medallion alone. The medallion was hand pieced from 1.5" charm squares whilst working onboard Empress of the Seas in 2005. The pieced border was put together on my return and from memory it was not quilted until 2006? The border was machine pieced and then attached tonthe medallion also by machine on my old Janome, my first proper machine after the Holly Hobbie one. I'm not sure if it was quilted on the old Janome or the Memorycraft.... I think the old one.
