Baby Quilt 3.....Dots



I started the 3rd Baby Quilt today...




I pulled a few fabrics from the cupboard...







This Background fabric inspired the Quilt...








Auditioning fabrics...







I removed the big dot fabrics...








This brown fabric is....yummy!








Narrowed down to these fabrics...







This Easy Circle Cut Ruler makes circles.....FUN!







The solid fabrics are catching my eye...







I've decided to use only solid fabrics...







A few of these are my hand dyes...














Swiss Cheese Fabrics...



















Turning the Edges on the circles:


Fusible Interface is the bottom 

layer....Fusible side Up

Circle on top......pretty side Down

Stitch 1/4 inch all the way around the circle.







Trim away the extra fusible on the edge...







Cut a slit in the Fusible Interface...








Turn the circle....right side Out







Finger press the edges...















All of the circles have a turned edge...







Next step.....Fusing down the circles then

stitching down the circles






Eventually I will trim the edges like this.



More to come...

I love the circles and the dots!!! That is the only way to do such applique......the results have such beautifully smooth turned edges!!!!

So jolly! Good decision to use just plains - they work so well with the dots.
