I'm going to be using bias strips for a vine. The vine is in a circle. The diameter of the circle is 22" - so it's a pretty big circle. The instructions say to cut the bias strips in 4 pieces and use the four peices to make the circle. Is there a reason why they want 4 seperate pieces for the circle, why can't I just use one big strip? It is a continuous bias strip, so I think it would curve ok, and there wouldn't be as many seams. Any ideas?

I don't know why you couldn't use 1 long piece.

Assuming the 4 pieces would end under a flower or something you wouldn't have seams anywhere else if you used 4 individual pieces.

Maybe it was the way they did it so that's how they recommend doing it. Is there a flower or leaf or something that overlaps the circle at each section? I would use one continuous piece but I would pause and lay it out every now and again to make sure it's curving ok since it's such a big circle.

IMHO

Thanks mary quite contrary and crispyquilts. I'm going to try one piece and see how it goes. If it doesn't lay flat or something looks funny, I'll rip it out and try again.
