This block and quilt couldn’t be any easier. To make the medallion mini quilt, make the tutorial 4 times:
Materials for the medallion quilt
- forty 10 inch x 1 1/2 inch strips in assorted prints or colours. Coordinate the colours and/or prints to maximise the effect
- four 10 inch squares of fabric
A medallion is just one of the quilt designs you can make. There’re a many other layouts that can be achieved with the 4 half square triangles that are made with this tutorial
Use high contrast fabrics for the strips. Place the darker strips on the sides and the lighter in the middle or the other way round.
As contrasting fabric you can use solids or a print fabric.
I used 10 fabric strips the same width but you can use fewer strips or strips of different widths.
One tutorial produces the next 4 pieces:
Important: Trim each piece down to 6 1/2 inch squares if necessary.
The finished block is 12 1/2 inch square.
Assemble the 4 blocks as shown on the picture:
The finished quilt is about 24 1/2 inch square.
