What happened to the weekend? It just flew by. In between work and sport activities, I did manage to finish a mini quilt. I decided it was time to practice sewing some curves.
And it is fully reversible! This is what the back looks like:
I used templates to cut out the blocks. I used a small rotary cutter to trace around each template, rather than marking the fabric and then cutting the fabric. The smaller the rotary cutter blade the easier it becomes to trace around a curved template.
Each finished block is a 6 inch square. The quilt measures 12.5 inches finished.
It is quilted with a squared off spiral, starting in the center of the quilt, spiraling out to the edges. I used the edge of my sewing machine foot as a guide rather than mark the lines on to the quilt before quilting.
I like the front of the quilt better than the back. The fabrics are a lot more effective in defining the circle and the curves as the color contrast is so much better. I probably should have used a solid fabric in the center of both circles.
The blocks were surprisingly easy to make, and I am hoping to make a larger quilt with this design. (One day!)
