Accuquilt Medallion Quilt
January 15, 2016
I'm over on the Accuquilt blog this week with a new tutorial for the beginnings of a medallion quilt. Accuquilt has this new die system called the Qube that can be used with their GO! cutters. Essentially, the Qube contains a variety of mix and match dies to make larger blocks. It comes with a variety of block patterns to get you started and all the cutting mats you need. It's such a cool product!
As soon as I saw this product, I knew it could be used in so many ways beyond just individual blocks. Working with the 12" Qube, I have designed a medallion quilt. This month's tutorial includes the center medallion and the first border. Over the next two months, I'll add additional borders to end up with a throw sized quilt. Fun, right? Plus, there is a little mystery involved - I'm not giving away the whole design until the end!
I hope you will check out my Accuquilt Medallion quilt. Accuquilt provided the dies and cutters to me at no cost, but the designs and opinions about their products are all mine. I love how fast and accurate my GO! cutter is. Seriously.
That is a striking block. I will enjoy watching the design unfold. :)

hi, how many squares across will this quilt be? I ordered the 9" qube, so I am trying to figure out how large my quilt would be if I followed your QAL. Looks interesting- do you have any additional info on how many fabrics will be needed?

As it stands, the medallion and border 1 add up to 21" finished. My goal is for the finished quilt to be approximately 60" square (it might be slightly smaller or bigger, but not by much). As far as fabrics go, there will be a few more added, but I don't have a total number as I am still fine-tuning the design. Hope that helps!
