Who’s ’s prepared to try out some curved piecing now? This is Kristina Brinkerhoff from Center Street Quilts and if you harbor ’t tried curved piecing yet, you really need to! I tagged this quilt as tough, but it’s really not very complicated overall. There are only a great deal of steps required that may be unknown to a: printing out the template, cutting out the pattern pieces, curved piecing, and placing the quilt on point. The cubes are large, however, and once you get all the pieces cut out, the piecing goes fairly quickly! Will you give it a try with me?
This quilt finishes at approximately 60″ x 80″.
12 Fat Quarters (Cheeky in Urban Chiks)
4 yards background fabric
5/8 lawn binding fabric
4 yards backing fabric
Print out the Circle Template PDF file (Click Here: Cheeky_Circles_Template_Pieces). Ensure that your printer has been set to print at “Actual Size” or “100 percent ” (not “Fit to Page” or “Scale”). There’s a 1 inch line on the pattern page that can be used as a benchmark to make sure that the templates have printed out in the right size.
Cut out the template pieces on the outside solid lineup. You can create sturdier template bits by transfering the newspaper pieces to template vinyl or a thick piece of cardboard. Simply trace the paper templates on the new template material (template plastic or cardboard) and cut the brand new templates along the outer solid lineup. The inner solid line is where the seams will be sewn (1/4″ in the outer solid line), but you don’t need to worry about transferring this line on the newest templates.
Press the (12) fat quarters to eliminate fold lines. From every fat quarter, use the Unit A Inner Circle Template to cut out (6) inner circle bits, for a total of (72) inner ring bits. I like to first trace the pattern onto the fabric and then cut it out with a smaller sized (28mm) OLFA rotary cutter. The bigger rotary cutter makes it is simpler to cut round the curves, but scissors can be used alternatively.
From the background fabric:
Cut each square in half diagonally twice to yield (12) side placing triangles (you will only need ten of them ).
From the binding fabric cut (7) 2.5″ x WOF strips.
Constructing the Blocks:
Lay one out Unit A Inner Circle cloth piece and a single Unit B Outer Circle cloth piece. Fold each in half of the curve and finger press to indicate the half-way point along the curve.
Flip the Unit B Outer Circle bit onto the Unit A piece (right sides together) and place a pin through the center points of both cloth bits.
Work your way to the outer border of this curve by putting hooks through the pieces of cloth. The inner circle piece must lay flat while the outer ring bit will start to ruffle. Ensure the outer ring bit is placing as level as you can at the seam line–ruffling out is just fine.
Pin the second half of the curved seam in the exact same method. You are able to observe how the pinned edge is still (fairly ) flat.
Gradually sew a scant 1/4″ seam along the curved edge. Eliminate pins as you move and ensure the outer circle wallpaper cloth is laying flat across the seam (you don’t need it to wind up with a pucker in the seam).
The quarter ring unit should measure 7.5″ x 7.5″.
Repeat the same curved seam process with the rest Unit A and Unit B fabric pieces. You should end up with a total of (72) quarter circle units.
Gather four quarter circle units and put them out as shown below.
Sew the two leading units together and both bottom units together. Press the seams open.
It is very likely that a few of the seams and edges on the quarter circle units won’t match up exactly. When that’s the situation, take extra care to make sure the seams of this ring fit up (and don’t worry so much about the borders of these cubes ).
Sew the upper half and the bottom half of the ring together. The finished circle block should measure 14.5″ x 14.5″.
Repeat the process with the remaining quarter ring blocks to earn a total of (18) 14.5″ x 14.5″ circle blocks.
Assembling the Quilt:
Collect the (18) circle quilt blocks, (10) side placing triangles, and the (4) corner setting triangles. Lay the quilt out as shown in the diagram below and then build each diagonal row, pressing seams open. Sew the rows together and press the seams open to a side.
Baste, quilt, and bind as desired.
This quilt finishes at 60″ x 80″.
