Congratulations you now have a completed top ready to quilt.

I would love to see any of the blocks you have made, you can post to Instagram using #stitchinathomemedallion2017 Or email me a photo.


  1. I look forward to seeing how they all come together when you can share, Cindy!

  2. I don't see this one in your Craftsy store.

  3. I can't wait to finish mine up. It's going to be a little bit before I get there, but I can't wait!

  4. Hurrah for you, Cindy! I didn't stitch along with this one, but I have enjoyed seeing the blocks come together. Medallion quilts are my all time favorite!

  5. I find making quilts is a unique art form. For me quilting actually means combining fabric pieces with a soft interlining using wool or cotton thread. Luxury Vibrators
