    The first one has some problems...I hate paper templates.
    I am much happier with the 2nd one
    I just finished them both.

    They are both beautiful, I have never seen a pattern like that, the shape is so unusual and you have got it shaped perfectly.

    Hi Connie,
    I really like your round quilt. I have never made a round one. Great looking colors and patterns. Where did you get the pattern ? What is the dimension of your quilt? i would like to make one for my round dining table

    Bebe: I went to a trunk show back in August. The two ladies were the owners of a company named Roundabout Quilts. I bought their two books and both rulers. The two quilts I made are 36" across. The smaller ruler is for making a 24" quilt. On the website are a few free ideas for the round rullers. I have in the past made the purse several times but with squares of fabric instead of rounds. Their website is WWW.Roundaboutquilts.com

    I really like those round quilts. I have done hexagon, but never round. You did an excellent job!!!!

    They are really interesting.
    Did you make up the design yourself?

    All you need to do is make a square bigger than you want your circle to be. Center your circle on your completed block and cut out. You must use binding cut on the bias to do this.
