Our mission for April was circles. Circles of any kind. Big ones, little ones, flying geese ones, whatever we liked. Cool, but the only experience I had with circles were the drunkard's path blocks. And with unerring ability it never crossed my mind that I could do them for this block. Why?!
No, instead I turned to another of my Go! Baby cutting mats and thought hexies would be a good idea. Why not, they are round(ish).
|I cut my paper with the Go!|
Not sure if you are supposed to be able to cut paper with it,
but I did.
|And taking a deep breath I cut the fabric.|
It was now butchered and there was no going back.
|Used those big tacking stitches to get the fabric and paper as one.|
(This is what you are supposed to do I think.
I didn't go and read any instructions or anything sensible like that.)
|Sorted my lay out,|
and sewed those suckers together.
|Jo had included some coordinating fabrics.|
I used these as the infill pieces to round out my block.
|And then I found the biggest lid I owned to mark out the circle.|
|I turned the edges under, |
pieced the linen to make one big backing fabric,
and sewed my circle on.
|Then I added some perle hand stitching,|
|And managed to be oblivious of my whacking big shadow when taking photos!|
