44. Circles and Wiggles in a Basket Block

Let's knock out another basket block today with circles and wiggles!

Yes, I know circles are the least favorite design of the year. They are challenging even for me, even marking every single shape on the quilt. I'm not exactly sure why - maybe it has to do with swinging around the circle and not being able to see the entire thing as you stitch it.

Even if you make a mistake, remember the trick about filling in circles with spirals to hide mistakes. It's a nice way to add more texture and it stops you from picking up your seam ripper to rip out a wobbly circle.

If you haven't seen this spiral in a circle trick check it out in this video:

I know this design isn't the easiest and I bet Josh is going to change it up a lot tomorrow so make sure to swing by to check out his take on this design!

Let's go quilt,
