I am participating in Sew Cal Gal’s “A Year of Red and White Quilts” Challenge.
A stylus travels in groves in a template and guides the sewing on the quilt itself. With this concentric circle template, when one circle has been sewn, the stylus must be moved to the next size circle to make the second circle of quilt stitching.
I went back to each white circle of patchwork and quilted a flower design in its center using a 3.5 inch plastic template to get the partial circle that formed the petals:
I used large straight pins to mark the placement of the eight petals for each flower motif:
And the blocks with red backgrounds and white crosses had this resulting quilting pattern:
Red circles of patchwork:
White circles of patchwork:

I used a single layer of Hobbs 80/20 batting and cream colored Glide thread for this quilt. All the pieces for the patchwork were cut with the Accuquilt GO! Winding Ways die set.
