Medallion BOM 2022

This page is devoted to the 2022 Block of the Month

I do hope fellow members will enjoy the BOM I have designed for you. There are two versions. The first includes Snail Trail blocks and appliqué with vines in a border. The second is a simpler design with appliqué and blocks. The centre block is 18.5" square with your choice of appliqué, needle turn, hand or machine buttonhole stitch, or simple raw-edge appliqué.

The fabric I chose for the background on all neutral blocks is a mottled greyish white, which I feel is more interesting than a plain white, but my preference may not be yours.

I have included the fabric requirements for each version of the quilt. You can change these for your own colour preferences.
Our first block will be the centre section. Please email me if you have questions:

Monthly Blocks

This section will be updated as each  monthly block is released. Download the PDF file for the full instructions.

Fabuary BOM - Centre Square

This is a good design for using up scraps, the flowers and leaves can be different colours as can the other blocks as well. I have made my quilt using mainly purple with contrasting colours, (it hardly made a dent in my purple stash!).

When cutting out the blocks I found that EQ is not accurate when it comes to fabric requirements. I have calculated the fabric required for the background fabric, which is where we will start first. The first block is the centre Tulip Bowl which is 18.5" finished. The background fabric total is 42" (1.07m). I suggest having at least 45" (1.15m) to allow for straightening the fabric.

I have made my quilt using machine appliqué, I always add an inch to the appliqué background fabric to allow for shrinkage. You may use Needle Turn, hand buttonhole or raw edge appliqué. Add a tear away stabiliser if you are doing machine or hand appliqué to stop the appliqué puckering.
