It’s Great for a Baby, Wall or Table!
This beautiful medallion quilt was created for a baby but we’d love to show it off on our table. It will also be wonderful on a wall.
A beautiful combination of colors and fabric styles makes the quilt especially appealing. Other color themes will be just as nice.
The quilt was made from blocks and borders provided by the “Choose Your Own Adventure” quilt-along from Moda and is essentially the center of a larger quilt. Make yours using the same blocks or mix it up. There are several options to choose from so look around and create your own version, if you’re so inclined (Path A, Path B, or mix them up).
You’ll find all of the block and border patterns at the following link. Start at the very bottom and move up to read the posts in order. You may need to click on “Show more” a time or two to get to the first article, “Oda Mae’s Summer Camp.”
(NOTE: Often the images don’t show on the web pages but they do if you click on the empty boxes where the images should appear.)
This quilt, made by Nancy Oakeson from Royal Garden Designs, is 41” square. Learn more about Nancy’s quilt here.
Nancy started by following Path B, using the “Star Valley” block in the center of her quilt. The block instructions are here.
The instructions for the first border (Border 1, made from the background fabric) are here.
“Cross Creek” blocks were used for the next round, alternating with squares of fabric that are the same size. You’ll find the “Cross Creek” block instructions here.
Instructions for the next border (Border 1) are available here (made from background fabric).
The next round (Border 3) was made from “Over the River” blocks, found here (from Path A). “Star View” blocks (instructions here) were used for the cornerstones. The Border 3 instructions show how to put it together.
Nancy stopped here for her lovely baby quilt. However, there are more blocks and borders, resulting in a bed-sized quilt. The following version was made by Sharla from Thistle Thicket Studio. Learn more here.
You’ll find more examples of quilts made from the blocks and borders provided for this quilt-along here.
The QAL fabric requirements for the full bed-sized quilt can be found here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
