Medallion Quilt

Medallion Quilt:  A quilt with a central motif, surrounded by multiple borders. The center is often a large square on point.

There are some incredibly beautiful Medallion Quilts out in blogland!

Drooling.  Drooling.
Looking.  Thinking.  Doodling.


Isn't this beautiful!  I love the fussy cutting and the colors!  Just wow!
And exhibiting extreme signs of I go!

Every time I see this picture, I want to write a Haiku!
"Floating white petals"

Machine pieced hexagons that are about the size of a quarter when all is said and done.  I marked a 1/4" seam line on all the outer, yellow ones and hand appliqued them onto a quartered "background" of Kate Spain's "Honey Honey" and some Quilter's Choice orange and white polka dots from Joann's.
I'm auditioning fabric for the first border that will be 2", but today (Sunday) I cut out and sewed together a bunch (but not quite enough!) of white and lime HST's that will be the second border.

I decided I like this layout best. 

Work on the Snowflake Hexies continues, but everytime I lay it down to position a new snowflake...Weekips comes and "helps"!

Freshly Pieced
Crazy Mom Quilts
Each week you can find hundreds of amazing ideas and inspiration in the projects (some WIP's and some finished) shared on these blogs!  QuiltCon has nothing on these ladies!

(sneak peak on a WIP)


  1. I love medallion quilts! Your's is going to be gorgeous, but that is not a surprise. Love your snow flakes too!

  2. It's coming along beautifully Dee. Makes me hope I have time to sew today!

  3. Great movement in the border!

  4. The medaillion quilt will be so pretty. Love the hexies and fabric choices. This is the second time I've seen hexie snowflakes and I think they're brilliant.

  5. GORGEOUS!!! Wow! :) I've yet to make my first quilt, but hope to this year. :) I hear it's quite addicting!

  6. Your medallion quilt is going to be fantastic!

  7. That is going to be fantastic when it's finished! I have been totally mesmerized by all the medallion quilts popping up lately. I love the oranges and greens in yours :)

  8. I love it...and orange is such a beautiful color. I can't imagine piecing them at only the size of a quarter. Way to go! Visiting from Show and Tell. Happy Tuesday!

  9. Thank you for the linky love Dee, you are gorgeous! I love your hexie quilt, what a stunner! xo

  10. How beautiful these projects are! Gorgeous fabrics!!

  11. Between your medallion and the snowflakes, you've got lots of hexie fun happening. I love that Honey Honey, too :-) Thanks for stopping by WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!

  12. These are absolutely beautiful. I am so afraid of hexies...
    I must now follow you to see the final project. :)

  13. Some really, really pretty examples. Happy Spring (it will come eventually! It's cold here).


Love hearing from bloggers wherever you are!
