This is our very first Block of the month Medallion quilt. (Will be released on the 10th of January)
There will be 10 different rows (rings) to make including the centre block. The rows (rings) after the centre will include a quilt block design and a corner block design. A new row (ring) will be released each month and the idea is to follow along with us and make a row each month. Eventually you will end up with a large quilt. The finished size will depend on which size hoop you use and how many rows (rings) you decide to do.
Approx finished sizes if you do the 10 rows as shown are:
4×4 : 124cm (49″) square
5×5 : 175cm (69″) square
6×6: 204cm (80″)
7×7: 241cm (95″)
Some of the rows (rings) will be basically half the width of your hoop and you will be able to make two of the blocks in one hooping. See the following diagrams.
The blocks are quilted in the hoop.
Full photo instructions and directions on how to sew the block are included with your purchase .
We have set up a Facebook sew along group for you to join if you want to follow along and see what everyone else is doing with this quilt design.
Instructions on how to add the borders, backing and binding to the BOM Medallion quilt will be included with the final row.
SVG and FCM files are included for the Silhouette and Scan n Cut machines.
Instructions are included in English and German
This is a sample of a medallion quilt off Pinterest. Ours will be different but the concept of doing the rows is the same. You can use modern or traditional fabrics for your quilt.
We are rapidly approaching the finale of the quilt. When will instructions for placing the backing be available?
The instructions for adding the borders, backing and binding will actually be included with the final row (Row 10).
If you do wish to make a smaller quilt and attach the backing/borders/binding earlier you could use the the free instructions we have released for the BOM Wonder quilt:
This will be my first BOM and my first large project from SWPea. I was very happy to find this explanation of things. I appreciate it that you are not only there to sell product, but to educate as well. Thank you. Looking forward to begin stitching.
So, if I don’t belong to FB I can still download the BOM?
Yes you can still download the BOM
How many stitches in a block 4×4 hoop? My Brother se400 is limited to 13,000 stitches.
There are only 7076 stitches per block for the first row, we can also provide you with split files if you do run into a road block with the stitch limit for any of the further blocks.
Wann kommt der Februar Block raus?
The second block will be released February 8th
I’ve just been looking at the dimensions of the planned blocks as per the diagrams above. I’m sorry but the maths don’t add up. A 4 x 4 block can’t finish at 4.75 inches. Is it supposed to be 3.75 inches?? If this is the case the finished size would be 48 inches. According to the other figures given, the 5 x 5 block will finish up at 65 inches, not 69, The 6 x 6 will be 79.6 inches (near enough) and the 7 x 7 will be 91 inches not 95. For someone trying to work out fabric quantities these figures matter. I notice that there seems to be lots of confusion over the fabric quantities. I’ve looked here because I wanted exact figures.Some verification needed please.
Thankyou Joan, The diagram has been updated
Are all the mystery blocks designs going to stay on sweetpea for a later puchase as a design pack after the contest is over with. Or should I buy them as they are announced. I would do the contest but I don’t know if I can keep up on the time with my schedule.
They will be on the website 🙂
The example pic really helped clarify the concept of this quilt for me. Thanks for that.
How can I buy the nieuw block of the month?
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW APPROX HOW MUCH FABRIC AND HOW MANY COLORS I WOULD NEED.
How many colours you choose is really up to you! You can be as creative as you like.
We include the fabric requirements in the instructions for the blocks as it will change depending on what size you are making.
Is this block (block 1) the center block?
Yes it is 🙂
So do you mean that we make as many blocks (rings) as we want for each row? Or do the instructions make this more clear. Or are we literally making one block (Ring) per month?
The Instructions will make this more clear. For the centre block you will make 4 blocks.
How is payment made today is the 10th and I want to be involved
