Monday Medallion Quilt Step 6



Welcome to step 6 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.

Step 6

Make 32 blocks of the 'O Block' found on page 28.
Sew two rows of 7 blocks and two rows of 9 blocks.
Sew the rows of 7 blocks to opposite sides of the quilt top.
Sew the rows of 9 blocks to the remaining twos sides of the quilt top.
Press the seams toward the O Block border.

I made 16 blue blocks and 16 black blocks, all with white backgrounds and alternated the blue and black blocks. This border could be made entirely from blocks of one color or by alternating the light and dark fabric placement in each block. Examine your scraps and see what you have available. Perhaps you will come up with a unique fabric combination that is perfect!

We are almost finished! Only 3 rows to go. I hope you are having fun with this quilt whether you are sewing along or just watching the progress.

Enjoy every stitch!
