I just HAD to have the circle die! It has so many applications that I couldn’t decide which project to make first.
I decided on one project, but then mid stream, changed my mind and finished this rag quilted table runner.
Using the 5” circle die and the 3.5” square die, I quilted a square of warm & natural (from scraps, awesome) to one circle so that the points of the square matched the sides of the circle as close as possible.
This created a nice sewing line for attaching the blocks together (the straight side of the batting will be the seam line for attaching).
Then, since I like a fluffy rag seam, I cut flannel 5” circles, which I used as a second batting layer. Then put a top cotton layer on top to make my quilt sandwich.
I like the scalloped edge look. What do you think about this GO! project? Before you answer, ponder this:
- there are 39 blocks in my quilt
- each block uses 3 circles
- that’s 117 circles
How long would it take you to trace & cut 117 circles by hand?
It took me 30 minutes TOPS to cut mine. The GO! cutter shapes rock.
