It is made totally on the sewing machine and results in a strong, washable quilt. It is a great pattern for using scraps, stored fabrics, or for fabric exchanges. Circular Patchwork is made of three layers: front, back and filling. The front fabric forms the window, which is framed when the back fabric is folded to the front side of the quilt. The filling is not seen, but gives substance to the quilt. This is a fast and easy pattern, so join me for a day of fun!

At Spring Training Camp we will be exchanging quilting elements to make different type of “Round Robbin” quilt. You will make and bring a large block to the camp where you decide the color scheme. Now your fellow campers/quilters will add borders to your block following some loose guidelines set up by Tone. Naturally, time will not allow for us to work on big pieces, but it will a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with. You should be able to bring home a small wall hanging made by your friends just for you. All quilts will be “one‐of‐a‐kind” originals. Pattern fee: $6. Page 4 of 7
