A link to this post will be found at the top of the blog under the heading Free Quilting Patterns, Techniques, Tutorials and Inspiration.
Our First Tutorial is by Lori Holt the designer of The Circle Rulers.
The pattern for the quilt above is included in her Ruler Set.
If you don't want to wait for our drawing but want to get yourself a set of rulers right away, you can order them online at The Fat Quarter Shop
Missouri Quilt Company has a fun video tutorial for their Cheerio Quilt. Although in this video they use a different method to obtain your circles, you can make this quilt easily, using the Lori Holt Circle Rulers. When selecting an adhesive backing for your circles, be sure to select one that is very thin, I am fond of the Pellon Wonder Under #805. It doesn't gum up your needles when you are piecing, doing applique or quilting.
Be sure to check back as the month progresses, we will be adding more and more fun links to inspire you! And if you have a link that you would like to share, please e-mail me at SisterOfTheDivide@gmail.com
