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…
