Circle Quilt (Crafter’s Companion Threader’s Cotton Tail Fabric)
3 Fabrics about an 1/2 yard of each ( Threaders Cottontail Fabric )
White Fabric 1 1/2 yard of White for the back
1 yard of White for Fabric Framing
1 1/2 yards of Batting
Threaders 6 metal circle Dies ( largest Circle )
Heat n Bond (lite) 17in x 2 yd
Wash all your fabric
Iron all your fabric
Take fabric for the circle and iron on the Heat n Bond
Cut 30 of the Largest circles with the heat n bond on the back
Cut 30 7″ White Squares
Take the Circle find the middles, take the white squares find the middles, iron the circles on the white squares.
Take all squares to the sewing machine and do a stitch around the circles, now you can do what ever stitch you want, I did a blanket stitch.
Lay out your circles in rows of 5, you will have 6 rows.
Sew your rows of circles together with a 1/4 seam allowance
Cut your framing fabric: cut 2, 4 inch strips for the top and bottom
Cut 2, 2inch strips for the sides. Sew your sides on 1st then sew your top and bottom on. You have now finished the top of your quilt.
You now need to sandwich the quilt. Lay your backing down, your batting will go on top of that, and last you put your top on.
Now you can start the pinning so that you can get to the quilting. Think about how you will be quilting and place the pins accordingly, because if you don’t when you get to the sewing machine you will have to take pins out which is a pain in the butt and your sandwich may shift.
The video below is a little sample of quilting in the ditch.
The last thing will be putting the binding on your quilt.
