Circles are a bit intimidating to a lot of quilters.
I admit I was a bit intimidated myself until I came across these 2 techniques to make circles.
I personally prefer the technique that uses freezer paper but both produce good results.
Learn how to sew circles 2 ways
- Fabric collection for the freezer paper circles is Marble with metallic. If you don’t like metallics there’s a Marble collection without the metallic. Using Marble charm squares pack is perfect for this project.
- Freezer paper
- Sewline fabric glue pen
- Clear fabric glue
- Light one sided fusible interfacing

My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
