    This can be any size
    very easy
    sew circles right sides together
    turn right sides out
    then stitch together in a row
    next sew the rows together
    Fun and easy.
    Batting is optional.

    Cut two templates, one a circle the other a square that fits into the circle. Mark your square in the circle when you have turned your circle inside out, then stitch the two sides together to make a row.

    I'll try to add photos later showing how.

    You could use the coffee filter idea that was posted earlier this week.
    Take your two fabrics right sides together. Use ironed flat coffee filters and sew to fabric. (leave a small opening for turning)
    Rough cut the circles
    Remove coffee filter
    Turn circle
    Continue with pattern.
    If you wanted to add batting, just add it as a layer when you put your two fabrics together ie batting, fabric, fabric, coffee filter.
    Sorry I don't have the link for the coffee filter idea.

    Thanks! Pretty.

    I think if you were adding batting it would have to be a square. Wouldn't that be too bulky to fold over and stitch down with the batting? Maybe not if you used really thin batting. Just trying to figure it all out and it's hard to do with this stinking headache.
    This is super cute. You must have started out with 10" circles?

    is there any preference or logic to where the "opening" is place on the circle re: how the circles are then sewn together? This is an amazing pattern. I've got to try it-- like I need to start something else!!!! sheesh!

    Ooh, this would be a great use for those round blocks made with coffee filters.

    Well, I had to jump up and go try it. I did it, in fact, with fabrics recently purchased of abdconsultant (I'm sorry... did I say I wasn't purchasing any fabric these days...? Don't pay any attention to that man behind the curtain...)

    The most difficult part was sewing smoothly in a circle. I have a 30-year-old "electronic" Singer, so it was completely free motion.

    A couple of things (well, three):

    1. The square's measurements should fit into the *finished* circle, not the pre-cut circle. I used a 5" (across) circle and a 3" square; square should probably have been 2-7/8 or even 2.75

    2. Get the "hole" for turning inside out as small as possible to make for a smoother closing curve.

    3. When sewing my first two finished circles together, I accidentally put the wrong two sides together, but before I ripped it out, I looked at it and decided I liked the alternating look.

    Here's the front. Oh by the way, it looks like it takes four 5" circles to get a length of 11" once the edges are folded in, so sixteen 5" circles results in an 11" square.

    p.s. I feel drawn to put something at the intersection of the four circles-- like a fun button or something.

    p.p.s. These four circles took me about 1.5 hours from cutting through quilting.

    Cut size: 5" circles

    One more thing: the fabrics I used are very light weight for typical quilting cotton. And I think that actually is preferable for this particular design. Made the quilt-as-you-go part easier.
