Sugarplum Medallion

Sugarplum Medallion Quilt at Fresh Lemons Quilts

We just wrapped up the Sugarplum Table Runner Quilt Along this week, but I’m not tired of those blocks just yet. I thought it would be fun to play around with them and see how they would look in a full quilt.

I couldn’t get the Modern Pine Trees block to work with my vision, but I think the rest of the blocks look pretty amazing in this medallion quilt. I started making my blocks and have the center (and the corners – just not pictured here) finished.

This is such a busy time of the year, but I’m enjoying finding little pockets of time to sit at the machine and work on this quilt. I will share more as I keep creating!

This week’s post covers two different finishing options. The first is a traditional quilted and bound finish. The second is a modified technique that incorporates pompom trim instead of binding.

Today marks Week 3 of the Sugarplum Table Runner. During Week 1, we reviewed the fabric requirements and cutting instructions. Week 2 was our introduction to foundation paper piecing, with the Modern Pine Trees quilt block and Poinsettia Flowers quilt block tutorials. Today we will be making the Snowflakes and Golden Star quilt blocks.

Today marks Week 2 of the Sugarplum Table Runner Quilt Along that I am hosting over at BERNINA’s We All Sew blog. Last Monday, I went over the fabric requirements and cutting instructions. This week we will piece our first blocks – and they are foundation paper pieced! Don’t be nervous though. I took tons of pictures so you can easily follow along and be successful.

For those of you stitching along, remember to print out your paper piecing templates at “100%” or “Actual Size”. This is a setting in your printer’s dialog box that pops up when you print. The exact location of the setting depends on your brand and model of printer, but it’s usually on the first screen. Check the scale icon on the template when it prints to make sure it measures at 1″.

I can’t wait to see everyone’s blocks!
