EQ7: Design a Medallion Quilt

How do I design a medallion quilt?

  1. Click WORKTABLE > Work on Quilt.
  2. Click QUILT > New Quilt > choose Horizontal or On-point.
  3. Click the Layout tab.
  4. Under Number of blocks, make Horizontal 1 and Vertical 1.
  5. Under Finished size of blocks, make the block size you want.
  6. Under Finished size of sashing, you can create a small border around the medallion by choosing a sashing size other than 0.00. For Horizontal Layouts, you must also click the check “Include sash border.”
  7. Click the Borders tab. You can now create as many borders, in whatever style you would like, to create multiple borders surrounding your central medallion.

Note:

  • If you want a center square larger than 48″, click QUILT > Options > click “All Styles” under “Layout Options” > increase the block size allowed.
  • If you want to use square blocks in your border, be sure to use a border style with “Tile” in its name. The “Tile” borders force the block to be square.
