Here are pictures of the step by step process of the rag circle quilt I made for my friend Jennie. It takes a lot of time but turns out really cool.
Step 1: Cut fabric into circles
Step 2: Put two circles together (wrongsides touching) and sew around the edge. Repeat.
Step 3: Trace a square inside each circle
Step 4: Sew two circles together along the side of the traced square. Repeat.
Step 5: Sew rows together using the square edges.
Step 6: Fold over the flaps from the cirles and sew them down
Step 7: Cut around all of the seams 1/4 inch apart
Step 8: Wash the quilt and admire the results.
Granted, the above steps are over simplified but you get the general idea. I absolutely love this quilt but the amount of effort can be daunting. Most of the baby quilts I am making right now are not this elaborate for obvious reasons- but it was a fun exercise. I will pst more pictures soon.
