Hello and happy Wednesday! We are having a lot of fun sharing the new fabric collection, and there will be a lot more information and photos of the fabrics coming soon. But first…this pattern! Introducing the Gelato medallion quilt pattern. I’ve been wanting to design a medallion quilt for so long. And it finally came together last spring. So of course I could hardly wait for just the right fabrics to use (Summer Sweet)!
Gelato Medallion Quilt Pattern
The Gelato medallion quilt includes some of my favorite blocks: a fun and scrappy center star, flying geese, half-square triangles, churn dash blocks, sawtooth stars, and square in a square blocks. It really goes together very quickly and uses a fat eighth bundle with a few additional fabrics.
My Gelato Medallion quilt has a fun and swirly all-over pattern on it and was quilted by my friend Marion Bott. She always comes up with the most perfect patterns for my quilts!
I used a fat eighth bundle of our upcoming Summer Sweet fabric collection for my version. I added in some extra of two different prints for the accent square in a square blocks and our large aqua floral for the border. This is definitely my favorite quilt I’ve made right now!
You can find the PDF and Paper versions of the Gelato Medallion quilt pattern in the shop now. And there is a special bundle price with free shipping if you purchase all of the five new paper patterns (paper pattern bundles will ship in two weeks). Find that here. And…Moda will be kitting this quilt in one of their lovely designer boxes. I will have pre-orders for those in the shop coming soon!
More fabric information and patterns to share soon!

This is beautiful! I’ve never made a medallion quilt before either and I think this just may go on my list! I love the new fabrics, too! So pretty, sweet, and of course, summer-y!

When will your book be out that includes “Family Farm” and other new designs included.?
I “Love” the Family Farm quilt but also have a love for quilt books. Please let me know when and where I can purchase your next quilt book. Thanks!

Sheri this is so pretty. I love the churn dash blocks. Thanks so much for teaching Pier 44 to us at Quiltstock! Can’t wait to dig into those again.

oooh, that will be great as a kit!! You’re right about the quilting that Marion adds: That swirl just makes the stars seem like they are dancing in the sky! 🙂 So in the picture of the fat quarter stack it looks like the dark color is grey, but in your quilt it looks like the dark is black. Which is it? Just curious. Thanks! Hugs, H
