another new project

Let's see how well cell phone pictures look here on the blog.

I've been arranging the pieces for a circle quilt. My sister-in-law Amy C. (I have a SIL named Amy T. too) is having a baby girl this summer. This is going to be her quilt! This was the very quick I-finally-got-all-96-pieces-cut-out layout.


Here it is after I changed it up a bit.

Amy said she liked the first one better. What I'm going to do is sew together all the quarter-circle and background square units so I have 48 pieces to deal with and then work on arranging them from that point.

Something I thought about while I was cutting these was doing a little tutorial for how to make your own template to make this quilt block. And maybe my technique for cutting them, too. Is anyone interested in seeing something like that here?

With those fabrics, you cannot go wrong. It's lovely!

And yes, we want a tutorial, please! :) Very cute and I haven't ever really done circles much...

Thanks!

Great colours! You can't go wrong with either layout... I honestly couldn't choose which I prefer.

Yes, please!

Absolutely, I love this design. It's modern, yet somehow, still very warm and comforting.

YES!!! I want a tutorial! I love this type of quilt- I just couldn't figure out how to to do the circles! Very cute quilt!

I'd be interested in a tutorial. I love the look of the circle quilts that I keep seeing, but so far have been far too intimidated to try it.

Your quilt is going to be great fun, no matter which layout you go with!

What a fun quilt and I would love to see a tutorial on how to cut the circle block pieces and sew them together.

ditto what L Johnson said......I'm trying to consolidate/organize/reduce my stash. What a great quilt to do that with.

I agree with Nikki - these are fun fabrics, both layouts look great!

Love the fabrics. Tutorial would be great, I have never sewn with circles.
