Modern Medallion

Modern Medallion

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be familiar with basic quilting and piecing

Pattern Description:

The Modern Medallion is designed from the centre out. Multiple borders surround the central medallion using a variety of modern techniques. The completed quilt size is 63" square.

The pattern instructions are broken up into each border. You will learn a variety of modern quilting techniques, such as improv foundation piecing, wonky piecing and free hand curves. Enjoy yourself - one thing I love about modern quilting is letting go of perfection and precise points. Embrace the unique design that comes from the improvisational nature of creating one of a kind quilt.

As this quilt is mostly made out of fabrics from my stash, it is hard to give an accurate fabric yardage. I would suggest approximately 3 yards of low volume fabrics, 3 yards of the coloured fabrics, with an extra 3 yards for the borders. However, a great variety will be required to achieve the many pieces that make up the Modern Medallion.
