Medallion Quilt-Along

I fell in love with an antique medallion quilt in the book Medallion Quilts by Cindy Vermillion Hamilton. There is no pattern for it, but, this is the general style of it. I’ll draft 1-2 borders a month in Electric Quilt and post the instructions here.

Join us at any time in making this quilt. Make as many borders as you like. There are 14 borders not including the prairie points. I’m aiming for an 88″ square quilt. It could be a little larger or a little smaller. We’ll see as we start adding the borders.

  • Start date is June 2008. Perspective finish date is June 2009.
  • Please share your progress photos in the Medallion Quilt-Along Flickr group.
  • Here is a line drawing of the quilt if you want to play around with some colored pencils.
  • And… a small post on potential yardage requirements.
