Circle of Love

 I designed the pattern called Black Magic Dresden and am teaching it at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co. The pattern allows for quilters to learn how to make a basic Dresden, applique, sashing techniques and setting your quilt on point. One of the bonuses at class is  learning how to make a perfect circle with my Cuttlebug machine. The circle of my Dresden plate measures 3.5 inches. I order a 3.5 inch circle die to fit the machine. All you do is adhere wonder under to a 4 inch strip of fabric,. Cut the strip into 4X4 inch squares. Lay the fabric on the die, add your two acrylic plates, one to the top, one to the bottom, turn the handle and allow the die, plates and fabric to go through the machine. Voila....a perfect 3.5 inch circle. It just doesn't get better than that!
