Hi Synthia! Circle quilts are fast and fun! You can machine applique, with either zig-zag stitch or blanket stitch, and your circles can either be raw-edged or you can turn the edges (too much work for me!) or you can use a fusible on the circles (cutting out the fusible from the backside so its just around the edges) to make the circles more pristine! We have used a CD as our pattern, its the perfect size, (about 4 3/4-inches) although you can make the circles any size you want. Cut background squares, 7 1/2-inches makes a nice size but you can cut them as big or as little as you like. I think most of us in my quilt group have a Christmas circle quilt and a Halloween circle quilt - and I have made several with scrappy blue fabric circles and scrappy red fabric circles...the skys the limit! Happy quilting to you and if you make a circle quilt be sure to send me a picture! xo, Nan
