FABRIC GUIDELINES FOR MULTIPLE MADNESS PATTERN
What size quilt do you want to make? Below is the information on how many medallions are possible depending on the fabric pattern repeat and the amount of yardage purchased.
It takes 4, 6 or 9 medallions to make a wall hanging. 3 to 4 for a table runner. 16-20 medallions to make a Queen/King quilt.
If the distance between the repeat in your fabric is:
12 inches, you will need approximately 4 yards of fabric, double this to get enough to make a larger quilt & to have enough for borders. approximately 4 yards will yield 7 medallions ? approximately 8 yards will yield 21 medallions.
24 inches, you will need 8 yards approximately 8 yards of fabric and yield 21 medallions.
It will always be approximately 4 to 8 yards because it depends on the repeat size.
DO NOT purchase background fabric until the medallions are finished.
