Medallion Quilt Block 11

Next block up is Cross Points. It is a variation of a Sisters Choice block.

This is a 12 1/2'' unfinished or 12'' finished block.

 All seams allowances are 1/4''

                                 F 4- 3'' x 3''

Step 1:

1. Using piece 1 A and 2 C's. With right sides together sew the C squares to an A square. Press seams to the dark fabric. See diagram 1a.

I would love to see any of the blocks you have made, you can post to Instagram using #stitchinathomemedallion2017 


  1. I like this one! I also appreciate the pressing direction suggestions. ;-)

  2. I think I'm behind two blocks, but I swear I am going to catch up!

  3. Nice tutorial!! All in all, the most basic of quilt blocks, a plain square, can be transformed into a truly unique and creative expression. Plain isn't necessarily so plain.


I love comments, however if you don't get a reply back from me it is because you may be a no-reply blogger. Hope you have a great day!
