Cindy Hamilton has made medallion quilts her area of expertise, and her gallery of such quilts is profiled in an outstanding gathering in MEDALLION QUILTS: INSPIRATION & PATTERNS. With plenty of sample borders, tips on how to customize, and photos of antiques from the author's own collection complimenting tips on yardage, sewing and techniques, quilters will find plenty to love in MEDALLION QUILT's pages.
