I have looked at quite a few quilts now, and most do not excite me any more. However, once in a while, I go ‘ohhh’. And that’s what I did yesterday when I came across this beautiful circle quilt tutorial.
I love the fabric pattern, design & color choices of this quilts. This is the kind of quilt that makes me want to collect fabric and begin on the journey of making something like this. Here are some suitable fabrics:

Step 1: Pick out your fabrics!
For a 38″ x 50″ quilt, you will need: 2 yds fabric for main blocks – I used white Kona cotton
1/4 yd each of 6 coordinating fabrics for circles
2 yds medium weight fusible interfacing
2 yd fabric for backing – I used a confetti print flannel
38″ x 50″ low loft quilt batting – I bought a package that was crib sized (45″ x 60″)
5 yd double fold bias tape – I used 2 packs of 7/8″ light gray double fold bias tape (total of 6 yds)
Coordinating thread – I used light gray to match the binding
This beautiful quilt comes with a detailed free how-to tutorial. Excellent quilt work, photo credit + find free quilt pattern / rest of the tutorial by Holly fron Bijou Lovely is here: Circle-Quilt-Tutorial.pdf
Two highlights, she quilted along each of the seams to make a grid pattern and also around each of the circles. They kind of pop out off the rest of the quilt. This is made with a Claire Bella flannel as the backing to make it extra snuggly.
