  • Make Your Own Medallion

    A medallion quilt has a large block in the middle, then a series of small blocks pieced into strips to form a thin border. Typically medallion quilts can have eight or more different borders, each one needing to fit perfectly around the previous one. And the maths involved in making these quilts can be a challenge!

    Erin Burke Harris takes all the maths out of medallion-making by featuring over 30 blocks in up to nine different complementary sizes so that you can add border after border to your medallion knowing the results will be perfect. Mix-and-match a variety of Erin's borders to easily build a design of your own.

  • Merrow Croft

    The beautiful colour pallet selected for this quilt was not random, but inspired by the shimmering tones of a summer sunset during Margaret Mew's travels to the village of Merrow, in Surrey England.

    Merrow Croft continues Margaret’s passion for Medallion Quilts. Here she combines her joy of hand piecing and hand appliqué once in a charming quilt in a fresh and pretty palette, but always with those splashes of her favourite teals and browns.

    As you approach this project (or any other project), Margaret encourages everyone to follow their instinct, your own individual tastes and colours. The goal, according to Margaret, is to bring your personal touch to the project to please you first!
