Challenge Quilt for the 2019/2020 Guild Season


Designed by Laura Malo


Welcome to this year’s challenge quilt and it will definitely be an adventure. There is still a bit of mystery also as everyone’s finished quilt will be different and unique depending upon which blocks you make and your fabric choices. I have designed this quilt using many varied techniques and processes and I hope that you go a bit outside your comfort zone and try something new. Don’t stress and have fun.

The finished size is approximately 76 – 80 inches square (depending on the size of your finished borders) and I will be giving ideas for extensions if you prefer a rectangular quilt.

Fabric requirements : approximately 6 meters of background fabric and 4 meters of other fabric (or 16 fat quarts)

Each month, you will make the required number of blocks but do not put them together. As this is a medallion, it requires each round to be assembled from the center out and there is a formula to ensure success in making everything fit (even if your blocks are not exactly perfect).

Each month, I will provide instructions for cutting the blocks and a list of websites with videos and tutorials on the technique used. I didn’t feel the need to re-write what others have so expertly done.

Of course, I will be available, either by phone (819-930-3041) or by email (, if you have any questions or require assistance.

Here are the the finished quilts.
