But I had help. She is so excited about receiving a quilt that she wanted a tiny bit of input into the design and fabric selection. She drew out her design and color scheme and went fabric shopping with me. After loading up our cart with her vast array of choices, I got busy following her colored diagram.
After I laid out the blocks we both realized that the quilt needed to be revamped and enlarged because she wants it to be huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge and fluffy.
We'll trace the dinner plates on corresponding fabric and and sew those down. Anyone have any savvy (read=simple, simple directions for my lack of mathematical ability) ideas on how to 'do' the circles??? I guess I am scratching my head about getting a perfect, precise circle and then how do I attach it? I don't want raw edges, but still desire something very uniform looking without it being too time-consuming.
