Welcome to one more post in the ever-growing sequence for the Medallion Sew-Along!
If you’ve made it through Medallion Sew-Along #2 — First Border Set, you may be feeling a little lost. (Or you may feel totally stoked!!) A lot of us are used to Blocks of the Month or Sew-Alongs with explicit instructions for what to do next. There is NO PATTERN here! You’ll make your own design decisions, one border at a time. I’m here to help guide you.
So come, dear ones, out of the woods. Let’s make some decisions.
Let’s try a few things and maybe you can feel more inspired.
Track 1 assumes you are starting with a 15″ center block, but these concepts can work even if you’re using Track 2 with a center of a different size.
Here is a layout assuming plain strips for both borders. The inner border is 1.5″ and the outer one is 3″.
Here are some ideas of how to jazz this up.
ON POINT SETTINGS
Again, Track 1 assumes you are starting with a 15″ center block. Even if your center block is a different dimension, these concepts may help inspire you.
Here is a layout assuming plain strips for the border. The narrow border is 1.375″, taking the piece to a finished size of 24″.
With one narrow border, this is a little harder to play with. But here are a few variations to spur your thinking.
What questions, comments, or ideas do you have? Tell me what you’re thinking!
