Antique Circles

from Tamarinis at Craftsy
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Antique Circles
Antique Circles

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Rotary Cutting, standard machine piecing

Pattern Description:

Inspired by a wonderful scrappy vintage quilt, this quilt features circles set on top of pieced blocks, for a terrific complex look that is easier to achieve than you think! The circles in this pattern, like many of my patterns, are faux pieced - so you really can do it!

Added bonus - a matching table runner using some of your leftover piecing!

When selecting fabrics for this quilt, look for fabric pairs with clear light and dark contrast. This will enhance the prism-like secondary block effect.

Pictured quilt was made with the Gallery in Red collection from Marcus Fabrics.
