AccuQuilt Go Video and FREE Doll Quilt Pattern
This small quilt is my Nested Circle Doll Quilt. Its 26″ x 17″. Keep reading to see the how-to on making it, and of course, click to see it larger.
Guess what I did? I made a little video. Its a video tutorial using the AccuQuilt Go! Circle Die. Its the same die that I used in my new Quarter and Dime pattern. In the video, though, I show you how to make a super easy, modern, cute 6 1/2″ nested circle block. (see the block in the doll quilt above)
Here’s what you’ll need to make the quilt in the sizes listed above.
8 Fabric scraps at least 5 1/4″ square (fat 1/8’s would be great)
8 background squares cut 6 1/2″ square
1 square measuring 7 1/4″ cut twice on the diagonal to yield 4 triangles
3 squares measuring 6 7/8″ cut once on the diagonal to yield 6 triangles
Fusible adhesive such as Heat’n’Bond or Steam-a-Seam 2
1/2 yard fabric backing
1/4 yard binding cut into 3 strips, 2 1/2″ wide
Step 1- Prepare the fabric scraps with the fusible adhesive product, per the manufacturer’s instructions.
((This part is in the video.))
Step 2- Cut a large 5″ circle from each of the 8 fabric scraps.
Step 3- Use the masking technique described in the video to cut a randomly placed 2″ circle from the larger 5″ circle using the AccuQuilt Go! Circle Die.
Step 4- Position the 5″ circle (with the 2″ circle cut out) centered onto the 6 1/2″ background square and press it permanently on, per the adhesive directions.
((Not in the video.))
Step 5- With the cut out 2″ circles, center those and adhere them to the larger background triangles. The smaller triangles for each corner will be left with no applique.
Setting the small quilt
Once you have the 4 row-type units, you simply join them together. The quilt will look like this when its complete. (Note: The grey edge is just so you could see the diagram, its not really a border, though you could add it if you wanted to.)
You should baste the quilt, batting and backing and quilt in a method that is pleasing to you. Then join your binding strips and apply them to the perimeter of the quilt using a continuous binding method.
