Circle Dance

I have another shop/class sample to show you today. This one is called Circle Dance.

It was made using 20 batik fat quarters and the templates shown below.

This is not a beginner quilt. It requires precise cutting using the templates, which are fairly easy to use. And then precise sewing of the curves. These units are not cut to size after sewing like so many of the other projects I do. You must cut and sew accurately to achieve the circles.

The instructions that come with the templates show you how to sew the curves both with and without pinning. I tried it both ways. No pinning worked best for me.

The finished top is 63" by 70". The smaller circles are made from the waste created in cutting the pieces for the larger circles. The pattern is included with the larger templates.

Love this quilt. I would really like to make one but am not successful sewing curves. I even purchased one of those special feet at AQS for sewing curves, but didn't help. I really do like your quilt. It inspires me to try again. Maybe I could applique it?

Love it. Nice job! Looks intimidating to me!
