Monday Medallion Quilt Step 5



Welcome to step 5 of the Medallion Sew Along for my new book Scrap Quilt Secrets! All of the patterns and pieces for this quilt can be found in the book. Detailed instructions on cutting, pressing and sewing along with diagrams and step by step instructions are all found in the book. This sew along will direct you to the page and item in the book for those instructions. If you need a copy of the book, you can order it here.

Step 1

Make one Star block B from page 73.

Step 2

Make 20 four patch units found on page 15.
Special instructions for pressing can be found on page 94.
Sew 2 rows of 4 blocks and sew them to the sides of the star.
Sew 2 rows of 6 blocks and sew them to the top and bottom of the unit.
Press the seams toward the four patch border.

Step 3

Make 28 Triangle Border blocks found on page 14.
Special instructions for strip piecing can be found on page 95.
Carefully arrange the blocks so that they are alternating as shown.
Sew two rows of 6 triangles and two rows of 8 triangles.
Sew the rows of 6 to opposite sides of the quilt top.
Sew the rows of 5 to the remaining two sides of the quilt top.
Press  the seams toward the four patch border.

Step 4

Make 20 Border Cornerstones (not the sashing size) found on page 75.
Arrange the blocks as shown, alternating the dark fabrics on the sides and tops of the blocks.
Sew two rows of 4 blocks and two rows of 6 blocks.
Sew the rows of 4 blocks to opposite sides of the quilt top.
Sew the rows of 6 blocks to the remaining two sides.
Press the seams toward the outer border.

Step 5

Make 40 four patch units found on page 54.
Special instructions for pressing can be found on page 94.
Sew two rows of 12 four patches together and press the seams the same way as shown on page 94.
Sew these rows to the sides of the quilt top.
Sew two rows of 14 four patch units and repeat for the remaining two sides.

Notice that I chose to make these four patches in a different color combination than the first set of four patches in step 2. If you would like to repeat the same colors, that would look great! I just chose not to because of the scraps I had available. We will have one more row of four patches before the end of this quilt, so you can decide now if you want all of them to be the same colors or not. There is no right or wrong, just personal preference (and available fabric!)

We are half way finished! I hope you are having fun with this quilt. The next few borders will ready make this quilt grow quickly.

Enjoy every stitch!
