    I would love to make a circle quilt like this in the 10 inch size. How do you suggest quilting it when done? I have a long arm quilting machine. Thanks for your help.

  • Brenda Daniel

    how would you stabilize the center and around the edge of the outer block

  • Sara Byman

    I am almost done with this quilt top and would still like to know how you suggest quilting it. I have a long arm. What about a free motion meander pattern around the circle part? Would that work? Thanks

    When you make the 10 in squares are they actually 9 1/2 inches in order to figure size?

      Carol- Jenny stitches a 1/4 inch seam, therefore the block (10″), will be cut down some. Happy Quilting!

    I’m making this for my first quilt and have a couple questions.
    1. On the large 10″ quilt you show in the video there is no border, was one added later or on this quilt can you get away without a border since it frays?

    2. I’m assuming I. Would not “quilt” a design on it since it frays in the circles or do I quilt it or can I do the quilt-as-you-go method?

    3. If i cant quilt as i go, Is the batting and backing just added at the end with 1/4″ seam?
    4. How much batting and backing for 10″ quilt?

    Sorry for all the questions but im really new to this. So, Thanks for your help, I want to order my materials from you ASAP after I know what to get.

    P.s. your tutorials are so inspiring. I got a machine as a Mother’s Day gift to “sew” but since watching you I want to Quilt like my grandma who was from Missouri 🙂 so thank you

    Jenny that was awesome as is all your tutorials,I bought this ruler off you awhile back so its full steam ahead for me.

    You did not mention trimming the “double layer” portion of the block. Do you then have four layers of fabric when you join the blocks?

  • Marie Ralbusky

    I love the circle quilts and have always stayed away from them. This is a fantastic way to get circles without all the fuss. Thank you!

  • Karen Feero

    I didn’t use pins when I was sewing the circle down, I sprayed just a little temporary fabric fuse on the circle and it worked GREAT. Probably will need to pin the squares though. I LOVE your tutorials. It is my evening video sessions….over and over again.

    Where can I download the tutorial videos from? This quite educative!

    Jenny, I’ve been reading my new “Circle Magic” book and have a question about cutting the turning slit. Wouldn’t it be safer for someone clumsy like me to cut the turning slit on one circle before I sew the two circles together? That way I wouldn’t risk cutting the second circle accidentally. I realize I would really need to pay attention when marking the dots so the turning slit ends up hidden. But, if I could be careful about marking, wouldn’t cutting the turning slit first work out OK?

    Would you please be so kind and tell me, which layer cake from ROBERT KAUFMAN did you use for this big quilt that you have shown. Do you have it in your shop ?

    Thank you !

    • JenM

      Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s called Glam Garden but we do not have it any longer in our shop.

  • Stella

    Love your tutorials, Jenny. I have learned such a lot from you. Where can I purchase the circle cut ruler?
