The Modern Medallion Workbook

Finally, after a year and a half of planning and waiting, I am pleased to announce that I have a book coming out!

The Modern Medallion Workbook by Janice Zeller Ryan and Beth Vassalo

The book is called The Modern Medallion Workbook and my co-author is the lovely and talented Beth from Plum and June.  We are joined by nine talented contributors whose quilts are varied, yet equally breath-taking.

A few of the quilts featured in The Modern Medallion Workbook:
Wedding Bouquet Medallion by Rebecca Bryan, Alliance Medallion by Alexia Abegg, One Step at a Time by Melissa Richie, and Zen Medallion by Latifah Saafir.

Beth and I were quite excited to create a book featuring medallion quilts, but we were also passionate about having an in-depth workbook section. The workbook allows the reader to learn new skills, and plan their own personal, one-of-a-kind, medallion.

  1. Truly, Janice, I was just looking at your book on (I still have it open on another screen, in fact.) It is on my wishlist–my birthday was this week and I was hoping someone would choose it for me. But I’ll be looking forward to its release date, as I’m a huge fan of medallion quilts and I think this is the year I’ll be making one for myself. Congratulations on what looks to be a tremendous book!

  2. I would like to purchase some of the quilt patterns but when i go to my shop and click on buy under the quilt I would like to purchase I not only shows different prices each time I try but the name of the quilt is not the one I clicked on, I so would like to know what to do I really would like to be able to purchase some of the patterns. I see no way of contacting you to get help and have noticed that posting a comment as others have gets no response so I am at a loss. I would be grateful for some help in knowing how to use the site, I am new at doing this.’
    Thanks Louise
