Here is my appliqued circle quilt. I finished it up last fall and posted it on Flickr.
Never got around to blogging about this one because I’m not really a fan. Loved the concept and the reproduction print fabrics, but my choice of the blue background just killed it for me. Maybe I would have liked it with modern fabrics on gray or white?
Not even a fan of the quilting! I should have done something different. Straight line (at least this straight line) is just not for me – I love the crinkly look of heavier quilting.
I gave it to my 4 year old niece and I think she likes it. If anything, it will be a good outdoor play quilt or picnic quilt for her.
Simple to make:
- Choose your circle size (these are 5″) *
- Cut up some squares (these are 6.5″)
- Stack ’em up and stitch them on
- Arrange however you want and sew, sew, sew!
Approximately 54″ x 60″
To stitch them on I just placed a circle on a square, pinned it in the middle, then zigzag stitched around it. Went pretty fast! No fusing paper or hand stitching.
* Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater. I bought these pre-cut off Etsy! If you have a fancy schmancy fabric cutting machine (I don’t), this would be perfect.
Now go sew something!
