The Circle Game

CirclesIt didn't feel like much of a sew-in, but there was some (hand) sewing–if the running stitches in the seam allowance of all those circles count– and at the end of the night I had prepared these 40 circles for machine appliqué . . . it seems a little less impressive in the morning light ;-)

I am using this method for the circles: Preparing Circular Elements for Appliqué

No, I did NOT decide to add appliqué to the sampler quilt, these circles, along with the leaves that will turn them into "flowers" will be going onto the setting triangles for Road Trip to the 30's, my BYOS quilt made from feed sacks.

Oooh, I can imagine the applique on the quilt...and I can't wait to see it! I love "lollipop posies" and they are just right for your feedsack quilt.

Your circles look perfect. I'm sure all that prep work will pay off when you get to the next step.
