Hey there! I bet you thought I forgot about the quilt along? Well, I didn't. I have just been busy a bit. We have some sort of virus in out house hold that has really ravaged us all. I don't think I have done this much laundry in years. Nothing like waking to the scent of vomit...I would share details, but I am pretty sure you don't care to read about them.
So for this little technique you just need to gather up your supplies. We will be making them by hand, so you can give your machine a nice little rest. What you will need is the fabric you want to make your flowers out of, something circular to trace (I used my spool of thread), strong hand sewing thread, #9 needle, pencil, some scissors.
You don't have to gather them all the way in, with my bigger circles I just gather them enough so that the edges turn under to make them easier to sew down.
Circle making is fun if you are on aircraft. It is a nice little project to while away the miles. Have a lovely time making circles. I think I need to go clean a toilet again.
