Sew All Around




Over the last few months, Gosia from Quilts My Way has been sharing patterns and tutorials for some circular quilting.  Initially, the circles were intimidating, but with her tutorials they became much more comfortable.

This week is the time to link up our finishes.  There were three different designs to stitch.  I managed to get the first two done, but busyness through the holidays did not allow time to get to the last one.  I did, however, keep the pattern instructions and hope to add the last one once life is quieter after the new year.

This was the first design with quarter circles.



This was the second one with half circles.


The third project is for full circles inserted into pieced backgrounds.  You can see other completed pieces at the LINKY post.

Looks like a fun project! I love all kinds of circle quilts, and should actually try piecing one sometime. Your examples are so lovely, and very enticing.

Quilting curves is a scary thing for me, but you've certainly done a beautiful job with them on these quilts. Wow...love them!

It's been years since I've done curves. These are really eye catching and that second one says WOW!

Lovely circles and very perfect looking. Prayers for the Thomas Fire to be put out and do no further damage or devastation. xo

Your projects with circles are inspiring! I’m getting ready to start a quilt with circles. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one, but it is something I enjoyed so I’m looking forward to it. Your quilts are beautiful!
