Accuquilt Medallion Quilt - Borders 4 and 5

Finished accuquilt medallion quilt

Today on the AccuQuilt blog, you can find the final two borders of my medallion quilt. It was a fun one to put together and I am particularly happy that I was able to source all of the fabrics in my stash. I used the navy background with the confetti dots as the color palette inspiration. I don't think this is a palette that I would have intentionally chosen, but I love how cheerful it is and that it was not my usual m.o.

I chose to echo the straight lines by quilting about 1/4" on each side of them. The backing was pieced with more of the navy print and little bit of a purple and white check. I machine bound the quilt by stitching the binding to the back, flipping it to the front and sewing it in place with a small zig zag stitch. Very fast and it looks great. The quilt finishes at 57" square and will most likely be donated to our school/church.

You can read more about the exact cutting dies I used over at AccuQuilt. The enterprising among you can probably figure our how to do it without the dies as well. It's just math. ;)



This is so pretty! I love how the large flowery print works so well with the smaller ones.


So pretty! I really like the roses on the navy background and how you used them in the piecing.


That is so pretty! I love the colors too :-) Great job!

Great design! I love how the red floats on top of the background colors. I especially like that green with the red.
