Club Medallion: A Very Special Monday Announcement

Hi Friends!

I am just dropping in to let you know that my friends Chrissy and Linda of Sew Lux Fabrics are starting a medallion block of the month. 

It is just like a regular block of the month, except instead of a block every month you will make a border. Then at the end you have a gorgeous 62" x 62" quilt. Finished. No sashing, just a whole quilt.

It will look something like this, only with color (or no color, tickles your fancy). 

For this border of the month club, you can subscribe to just the pattern (for a special price until October 1) or you can pick a kit. If you are just a pattern subscriber you get a fresh set of directions emailed to you each month.

When you order a kit, you get all of the fabrics you need for each border mailed to you along with directions every month. I mean, seriously, it is built in happy mail. Also, knowing Chrissy and Linda (as I do), they will totally be giving you some fat cuts (if you know what I mean, wink, wink) and you will have some yummy scraps every month. 

There are two kits options. 

You might ask, "Sarah, why are you, Stitching and Bacon, so excited?" 

I will tell you. 

Chrissy asked me to curate a medallion's worth of quilt fabrics. ME!

Meet the Hipster Edition for Club Medallion. 

I was going for a cool color vibe. You know, hip.

This quilt is a complete mix of fabric lines, new and old. I had SOOOO much fun putting it together. I am really, really loving navy and yellow right now. I am pretty smitten with the faux woodgrain print from S'more Love. You have to see them and you will know what I mean.

Chrissy picked the gorgeous fabrics for the Prepster Edition.

It is so cheerful and fun. Look at those dots! What is that I spot, a faux woodgrain? Such a sunshine-y quilt.

Can't you just see this on your couch?

The details for the club are all on the Sew Lux website or in this blog post. It is six months long starting in October and running through March.

The best part is, we are all going to do it together. I can't wait to see everyone's work. I love the sense of community that we get from sewing together.

I will be posting my medallion business up here every month. Will you join me?


  1. Exciting! And that's a sweet looking medallion quilt! :)

  2. Funny story, I saw the announcement on Chrissy's IG and said I was excited to see the fabrics. Then, she texted to say they were already online. So I looked and saw the Hipster version and thought "wow - Sarah would really like that" and then I realized you curated it! Totally awesome and totally you friend!!
