Use a sharp rotary blade to free-hand cut gentle wavy quarter circles through all four stacked layers. Extra rulers were used to help prevent the layers from shifting as I cut.
I am right-handed so I started cutting the outer curve at the 9" mark along the bottom of the stacked squares around in a wavy quarter circle to the 9" mark along the left side of the stack. Left-handed quilters may opt to rotate their mat and cut from the bottom left to the right edge.
Turning Edges Under:
Layer and Assemble Blocks:
- One solid square of fabric per row and column for a total of 8 solid squares in your quilt top Think of it as a giant Sudoku game or use the layout below as a guide.
- Alternate backgrounds across each row and column (ie. black and white, color, black and white, color...)
- Include a pink, blue, and yellow fabric in each completed ring
- Avoid having duplicate fabrics within each ring or touching each other (ie. corners or adjacent blocks)
