This is a note to those beginners who are considering making the bullseye quilt and who are worried sick about those curves. Try this to see if you can handle it and if you like it before you commit to a whole quilt.
Cut a square of fabric and cut a circle of fabric. Lay the circle on the square and sew around the circle. Use approximately a 1/4″ seam line away from the raw edge of the circle. Reduce your stitch length. It will not matter if the stitching is uneven from the raw edge. DO NOT WORRY! I guarantee it will be ok.
Try this if you’re concerned about making a bullseye quilt – if you hate sewing around this circle, don’t start this quilt. Save yourself some angst and make a 4 patch quilt instead – ha!
If you have questions please feel free to contact me at
I don’t mind you asking – I’d rather help you make this quilt than have you start and hate the process. There’s still time to gather fabrics and cut out your first step. We will begin sewing on February 1. Pattern can be purchased online or a paper pattern from us at the address shown on our home page.
I am still admiring the quilts – I will continue showing bullseye pictures as long as you send them to me! Happy Friday!!
