As sewers and quilters we have all the colours of the rainbow at our fingertips. For some it is a blessing but for a good percentage of us it is a challenge at the same time. Using colour is a bit about what you know and a heaps about what you love. It’s the old saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Literally is means that the perception of Beauty is subjective – what one person likes or loves another may not. In this post we’ll explore two colour schemes for the same projects.
In September 2018 Emily Dennis and Tuva Publishing released Modern Quilts Block by Block. This publication included 12 modern quilt projects which in this post we will be highlighting one of these patterns - Mini Medallion – and present it in two colourways.
Mini Medallion is a geometric mini quilt or table topper using prints and accent fabrics. Completed project measures 24 inch by 24 inch thus allowing you to use a piece of 100% patchwork fabric as your backing. Quality patchwork fabric comes as 42inch WOF.

In this pastel print version we used “Woodland Tea Time” by Lucie Crovatto for Studio E Fabrics with the white being from our stash. The backing is “Home Grown” by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex, LLC.
Creation B — Solid Print
In the solid print creation we used ”Colorworks Premium Solid” by Northcott Studio with the backing being from “Bugs Galore!” by The Blank Quilting Corp 2019.
