Make It Yours: Designing a Unique Modern Medallion Quilt

Janice Zeller Ryan Stash Books ePub

While all the quilts in this book are designed as stand-alone projects, many of the center motifs and borders can be resized and mixed and matched. You can use the designs for the borders and center motifs exactly as written or as an inspiration as you put pencil to paper to create a quilt that is uniquely you! Don’t rush it—enjoy the process. Designing projects almost always includes at least a bit of trial and error, but by taking your time, you can design and make a beautiful medallion quilt.

WHAT SIZE QUILT ARE YOU MAKING?

The first step in planning your modern medallion is to decide what size quilt you want to make. You don’t need to decide the exact size, but are you making a pillow? A throw? A king? Here are some general ideas for sizes to get you started:

SIZE GUIDELINES

Wallhanging/pillow: 36˝ × 36˝ or smaller

Baby quilt: 45˝ × 45˝

Throw/lap quilt: 60˝ × 60˝

Bed quilts: Start with a square design equal to the smaller dimension for each bed size listed. Add borders to enlarge to a rectangular shape. Use one of the methods from Making a Border Fit to find options for these additional borders. The amount of drop a quilt has (how far it hangs over the side of the bed) is a personal preference. For the most accurate sizing, take measurements of the intended bed using a tape measure.

The sultans of the Ottoman dynasty ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1299 to 1922. The Ottoman sultan was the absolute ruler of the territory, and his words were law. A total of 36 sultans ruled during the Ottoman dynasty. This empire was one of the most powerful states in the world. In the seventeenth century, it contained 32 provinces. The location of the Ottoman capital of Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) was ideal, at the center of trade between Europe and Asia on the Mediterranean Basin.

Cushion A

■Blue: 1¾ yards (160cm) for front, back, and appliqués

Gelibolu Bag

Harvey, Tamsin C&T Publishing ePub

FINISHED SIZE: 15˝ × 13½˝ × 1½˝ (38cm × 34cm × 4cm)

Gelibolu is the name of a town and a district in the Çanakkale Province, located in Turkish Thrace. This town is also known as Gallipoli. Gallipoli has a very strong link with Australia, because during the First World War it was the location of a series of memorable battles, including the first major involvement of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). This campaign was regarded as the greatest Ottoman victory during the First World War and was considered a major Allied failure. The Allied and Turkish forces both suffered heavy casualties; over 11,000 ANZACs were killed and 33,500 injured. The events that took place in the First World War played a major role in the movement toward the Turkish War of Independence and led to the founding of the Republic of Turkey under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Atatürk had been a Turkish commander during the Gallipoli campaign. He led the Turkish National Movement in the Turkish War of Independence and became the first president of the Republic of Turkey in 1923.

Most covered-button sets come with instructions and the tools to make a covered button. Read the instructions on the package before starting.

1.Ask for help from an adult to remove the wire loop found on the bottom of the covered button pieces. Pliers should do the job pretty quickly.

2.Cut a piece of fabric that is bigger than the button you want to cover.
