A Quilt Along

Yet Another, 12 Days of Christmas Mystery Quilt-Along, Day 9

Welcome to Day 9!

Today we will make another Tiny Dresden Plate block, yay!!!

I think that making practically perfect circles may just be my super power.

What’s yours? lol

I LOVE to make circles & other shapes,

but especially circles, with my Apliquick Bars!!!

They are not hard, you just need the right tools & practice!

If you need more help making circles & other appliqué shapes nicer, click on this link to see my very short videos using the Apliquick Bars.

Keep in mind, if the freezer paper shape isn’t smooth & perfect, the appliqué shape will not be smooth & perfect either.

This is the reason I use circle paper cutters to make perfectly round shapes.

I now use 5 different size cutters to make perfect circles for my quilts.

2″, 1 1/2″, 1″, 3/4″ & 1/2″.

They are all available on my website & can be found by clicking here.

They will not cut 1 layer of freezer paper, but they love to cut 6 layers!

I cut strips of freezer paper & punch out 6 perfect circles at once.

Of course I have tins that hold each size cut circle templates.

When I’m ready to make a circle(s) I just open that tin and fuse as many circles as I need to the circle fabric and I’m ready to go!

Pretty cute don’t you think?

No, not just another excuse to frequent antique malls & flea markets… lol

These are my 2 Tiny Dresden blocks w/ pretty circle centers.

Just 1 little perfect circle center each…

When you get your blocks made (I know there are lots of you following along) please share them with us on my Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SewingWithSusan

I’ll be back tomorrow with our Day 10 block.

Just Keep Sewing…
