Quilting circles the easy way: Raw edge appliqué
Here is the third quilt pattern for my upcoming fabric line DAY IN PARIS arriving in stores by April 2019. I reproduced a former pattern, which I developed for the TRUE BLUE collection and it's called BOWLS.
Bowls is a smaller lap size quilt 55" x 55". It makes use of one Layer Cake (assortment of 42 fabrics, each 10" x 10") and therefore it showcases the complete collection, all the beautiful fabrics.
No worries about curved seams here: Bowls is pretty easy to sew: the technique used is raw edge appliqué, machine sewn. That's really easy to do.
The half circles have kind of an non-obvious order: Although they are arranged in a grid setting, they change direction once in a while or are left out here and there.
When it comes to quilting you shouldn't quilt too tight: The fusible web used with raw edge appliqué gives a bit of a stiffer touch to the fabric, so the quilting should be loose to obtain enough cozyness.

Stay tuned for another brand-new pattern to come.

Such a cute and tiny 6" block: Take good care with your fabric placement to create that weaving look (as if the ribbons would have been woven in the middle of the block).
