Again this year, for the quilt guild I am apart of, I am providing instructions for how to make a different quilt block each month. For the month of November, we are making the Medallion Quilt Block. This one looked like it would be a ton of fun and simple to make.
This block can be made scrappy like I did, or you can use 4-5 different fabrics.
For a 12 inch finished block (12.5 inch unfinished), you will need to cut the following:
Background (White Center)
1 of 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch square
Various Colors or Prints
48 each of 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch squares
20 each of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch squares
Start by laying out the 1 1/2 inch squares to make a four patch mini block. Press.
Layout all the squares and the 4 patch squares to create the block.
Stitch together groups of squares like in the picture.
Then, stitch them together into rows, then sew the rows together to create the block. Press.
This one was super easy to pull together. The hardest part was picking all the fabrics to use!
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
Check back each month for a new How-To of quilt blocks! To see the other blocks, just search my blog for Quilt Guild Block of the Month.
This is classic block that has been designed and created by many people. As I have mentioned before, these block designs come from the book 5500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone. (c) 2003 but these instructions are written by me.)
Have fun quilting!
