This is Multiplicity, another of my new patterns, tested by dear friend Brenda’s daughter. It combines two simple blocks to create and x and o pattern. The pattern is available on my website.
In quilting it I wanted to do an all over design and finally settled on Baptist Fans. I started by making concentric circles with my compass on contact paper. I made mine with diameters of 1 1/2″, 3″ and 4 1/2″
I then drew a line through the center of my circle.
I lined up the 45* line on my ruler on this line and drew a new line from the center of my circle to the edge.
I repeated this process on the other half of my circle
So I ended up with a peace sign effect like this
I then cut out my arcs. You get two sets from each circle. I used two circles to finish my quilt. After so long the sticky isn’t so sticky.
Then starting in the corner I placed my arc in place and stitched on either side
Then placed the larger arc and stitched around the it’s outer edge.
Then I placed my smallest arc next to the edge of large arc and the edge of the quilt and repeated the process. I did this in rows up my quilt
Until I had the whole quilt done.
