Let's create the Heart Medallion Checkerboard Quilt

It's Quilty Box Time! This month's Quilty Box arrived and I'm super excited to share a big box of goodies picked personally just for you:


Included in the box is a pack of Cheater Needles, two spools of Isacord Thread, a little pouch of Soak a wonderful laundry detergent, a Tutu sewing organizer and two yards of my Island Batik Heart Medallion Fabric.

I love getting a box of fun gear and beautiful fabrics every month and this month was extra special because I got to work with Patrick to bring you an excellent box of gear and create a fun quilt pattern for us to create together.

I decided to stitch it up a notch this month and create a mini quilt along to guide you through all the steps to creating the Heart Medallion Checkerboard Quilt. Let's begin my learning how to piece this quilt top together in this new quilting tutorial:


We have four more videos to guide you through machine quilting this simple checkerboard quilt. I'm going to teach you how to stitch in the ditch to secure the layers together, outline quilt the medallions, fill the first border with straight lines, and the outer border with Heart Paisley.

I love creating new patterns for Quilty Box each month because it's a wonderful design challenge. I get the box and have to design the quilt, write the pattern, figure out the math, and film the videos in 3-5 days. I know I couldn't do it without Dad's help putting the quilt top together while I write and double check the fabric calculations and math. It's a wonderful team effort and at this point we've shared over 24 free patterns!

Here's to another beautiful quilt and fun quilting together!

Let's go quilt,

  1. What beautiful fabric - Island Batik Heart Medallion Fabric. And your Heart Medallion quilt is so cheerful. Love the idea of the QAL.

  2. I love the designs in both of these. Do you have plans in making these in other color ways? Possibly purples or teals? I tried posting this earlier, so I apologize if this ends up posting more than once.

    1. We do have a purple colorway, but none in stock at the time. I'll see about adding that color to our next order.
