I love your circle quilting - something I really want to try. Not sure my little machine can do this
Capetowngirl what sort of machine do you have?
If it'S a standard home sewing machine, you just need to go to the pool a few times to train your shoulders an arms a bit and then it's all about rolling and wrestling and squeezing ... The largest quitl I did on my machine was 2x2 m (that's hmm 78" square)
What is helpful is a little guide you can attache to your sewign foot - so you can hold an equal distance - also to keep in mind - the biggr the circle the easier it gets ...
This quilt started with a circle I drew around my pencil sharpener and then I fixed the guide at 1 inch and sew sew sew sew ..
LOVE the circle quilting!!!
Love the quilting and also your observations - very helpful for others
