GO! Qube Medallion Quilt Part 2

Feb 10, 2016, 9:00:00 AM / by Erin Harris

Hi everyone! It’s Erin from House on Hill Road back today to add to the medallion quilt I started last month. I’ve designed and cut my entire throw-sized medallion quilt using my GO! Cutter and the GO! 12” Qube dies. This month, I am adding two more borders and next month, we’ll finish piecing the quilt top. If you are just joining us, please check my post from last month that shows you how to get started.

For Borders 2 and 3, you’ll need:

GO! Cutter
