The backstory here is that I designed and wrote a quilt pattern called Cora several years ago. I designed this medallion shape specifically for the quilt. It's shown in two different colors because it gets stitched out in two parts: first the center, stop to tie-off threads, and then the outer portion. 

Quilt coats are all the rage, maybe this design would look nice on the back of a coat? Or a panel for a bag? Or a decorative pillow? Or a wholecloth quilt like the purple one shown? Btw, when I was making that wholecloth sample, I stitched my medallions first. Then, I marked the diagonal lines between the medallions with an air soluble pen. Lastly, I used a ruler to hand-guide them on my longarm.


Here are my specs from the sample shown on a baby quilt approx. 45" x 60": 

Block height: 16" - I'd try to maximize the available quilting space that your frame will allow.
