Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I love this in batiks and you did a great job of figureing it out. I've seen this done and, if I remember correctly, you are doing it the same way. I didn't know that there were machines that would sew a circle. Unfortunately my machine doesn't so I would have to draw a circle and stitch around the circle. Where/how did you turn the circle after is was sewn right sides together - - a slit under what subsequently is stitched down on the back of the quilt?
Bookmarked. Will have to share with DGD who's just learning. I know she'll love this one, as much as I do. Made her first on Sat., a small wall hanging, which she'll give to her other Nana as a belated gift. The look on her face when she saw what she had made was PRICELESS.
I love batiks and you are so clever in making this quilt. Amazing.
That is exactly where I turned it. You don't even need to stitch the cut closed because it is inside the folded over part. (after I posted the directions, I realized I hadn't mentioned that part. sorry!)

Very, very clever and looks stunning.
OMG! Many many moons ago when I first ventured into making handbags I used this "block design" for a handbag. It was before rotary cutting so I had to trace out and cut all my circles with scissors... and I used flannel instead of batting. Back then I was in love with the idea of getting both the inside and outside of the handbag finished as one. However I must say I do love the look of your quilt much more than I liked the look of that first handbag. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
You're doing a very nice job... and I do love the look very much!
A friend was given a stack of cut circles and she did this. It is a very pretty quilt and when she explained how it was done it is easy. I like those things that look more difficult than they are.
I love your color and fabric choices.
