You should have all 48 – 9″ blocks like this.
If you have not finished all 48 just read along and make notes.
All blocks should have the light base fabric trimmed away and saved to the side.
Cut circles from the 6″ squares and sew them to the 8″ circles you sewed last week.
If your circles aren’t perfect remember looking at this photo of one of my blocks. The circles are questionable at best.
Trim away the 6″ circle from the back being very careful not to cut through to the front side.
Here’s the trimmed back side.
Not very good circles but still just fine for this quilt!
Here’s where you will notice those light circles that you trimmed away last week could be used. If you want all your blocks to be different you’ll save those trimmed out light circles for another quilt – maybe one that uses 9″ DARK squares. This quilt continues to produce leftovers which means it’s easy to whittle down your fabric stash by cutting 9″ foundation squares and who doesn’t need to do that? You should see my stack of light circles – I’ll never need to wonder what to sew! Haha!
I think you’ll begin to see the outcome of making Bullseye blocks. Sew the second fabric circle to your blocks and trim away the back fabric.
And I’ll see you right back here next Tuesday!
It’s another beautiful day in North Iowa – temps in the low 30’s! Who knew we could have such nice weather in January??????
I’m putting my mystery quilt together – here are the two different blocks we made – 49 total.
Bonnie Hunter has got the art of the mystery quilt down pat – such fun for all of us participating!
