During this class, you will learn how to create the Giant Dahlia Center medallion using Marti Michell’s templates and instructions. The medallion can be finished for several purposes, including an appliqué for the centerpiece of a quilt, a tablecloth, or a Christmas tree skirt. In this class, we will focus on the traditional quilt. Fabric supplies may vary depending upon your color and design preferences. A color sheet is provided for you to copy and color in various combinations until you decide upon your favorite. See pages 16 and 17 of your template kit instructions for ideas.
