Tired of straight lines? Today's project from Melanie Monday of Melanie Dramatic will add some curve to your quilting regimen. It is always more challenging to work with curves, and circles have to be perfectly balanced, but such projects can also be fun and rewarding! So break out your favorite Dresden circle tools and let's get to work! More from Melanie:
"As requested by many on instagram and twitter, today I have a tutorial for you on how to make a ring mini quilt (or make several blocks for a full sized quilt.) The four I made as gifts finished at around 15 inches square. The one I made for myself in this tutorial is a bit smaller. It would be easy to adjust to whatever size block you want.
"I had been contemplating these quilts for a long time now, thinking about how to make it. I thought about paper piecing quadrants, but didn’t want seams on the background and center circle. Then when delightful Cristy changed my life (with the glue), I knew that I could use glue to make my circles. The deal was finally sealed when I was a Joann’s with two 50% off coupons and I spotted an Easy Dresden ruler. It was the perfect way to make my wedges! (And it ended up being less than $4!)"
