I’ve been quilting for a while now, but when it comes to circles, I’m still completely awestruck and (I’ll admit it) a wee bit intimidated by those curvy seams! And, of course, there’s plenty of temptation out there on flickr, waiting to inspire me (and you!) to try. Check out this fine collection of quilted circles, wedding rings, and things from some of my flickr faves. I love how some of these blocks and patterns aren’t actually made with curves, but they take on a round shape once they’re put together into the quilt.
