so the next step was to cut those circles into fourths and then re-sew them together. this tutorial showed me that it's more work but you want to cut the excess fabric off of the back of the 1/4 circle (this is a picture i'm missing so the tutorial will help)which when you are done then you so and the back will look like this. well now i have all these 1/4 circle and i just CAN'T throw them away!!!! that JUST WOULDN'T be right!!!!!!! i don't think i could sleep!! so i am sewing them together and will use them on white as a boarder for this quilt. one scrap down one the go! :)when i thought about the 1/4 circle i thought SURELY i could use the scrap from the cut out circles. and so i cut out 1" squares and will make floating nine patch squares. i LOVE them. i just HATED throwing any of this fabric away. it's so cheery!!!! makes me smile.just a heads up this is trash. :):)
this is the rough draft so to speak of the quilt called round and round we go. i'm getting the rows together and it is super fun and bright and cheery!!!
