A few weeks ago, I decided what I wanted to do with the Susybee Bunny Friends Bert & Beatrice Quilt Panel that was hanging out in my stash. I absolutely love how fun this bright bunny print panel is.  I designed a medallion quilt based on the center of the panel.

I’m now in the process of piecing the top of the quilt.  After cutting out my 16.5″ center, I started piecing hourglass blocks for the first border. Generations Quilt Patterns was super helpful in getting dimensions figured out to make my blocks. I needed to make 24 of the 4″ blocks, but unfortunately, I’m still bad at math, so I made too many blocks. I’ll probably put my leftovers on the back or in a matching pillow.

Have you ever made a medallion quilt? Did you work from a pattern or design it yourself?

  1. I love the way your quilt is developing. I have made about seven eighths of a medallion quilt from a pattern. Why only seven eighths? Because something went wrong somewhere, and row seven was about 2 inches smaller than row 6, on all four sides. Sometime I will have to start unpicking, but I find the whole thing so depressing. So while I decide, I do nothing! I will probably design one myself, then I’ll just MAKE things fit!

    1. Could you just add more blocks that match the ones you’ve already done? If that won’t work, maybe make fancy corner stones to make up the extra space? That would be my solution.

  2. I love how bright and cheery this quilt is! Thank You for stopping by and linking up with “Anything Goes Monday”. I am enjoying be a guest host and meeting so many new quilty friends. I just started following through Email and look forward to more of your posts in the future.
