Did you like the Bullseye Quilt Block?
Well if so you are in luck............
Today's terrific post is a tutorial on how to make
one of your very own.
In this tutorial I am showing you a Sunflower bullseye block.
However you can choose any color way you like.
In the above blocks I chose an assortment of gray
fabrics to use for my base square and a wide assortment of
bright fabrics to make the bullseyes.
|Required for each block:|
One 9' base square
one 8" circle
one 6" circle
one 4" circle
(yah, I know....I should have chosen a light
blue, but I probably used what I had on hand!)
The 8" green circle is the leaves
The 6" yellow circle is the flower
and the 4" brown circle is the flower center.
|How do you cut the circles?|
I made 8", 6" & 4" templates cut from
cardboard boxes and then drew around these circles on the
back of my fabric with a pencil
then cut them out.
|After creasing your placement lines and positioning|
your 8" circle you will sew 1/4" around the edge of the circle.
|Turn your square over and carefully cut away the extra fabric.|
This picture show a roughly cut circle cut approx. 1/4" from sewing line
|Repeat for each circle|
|This is what the back side looks like after you sew and cut away each circle|
|Cut each block into 4 equal sections|
|Make a bunch of these blocks so when you cut them into|
1/4" you can mix and match them.
That's it for tonight...........
Have a blessed evening,
