    Circle Quilt

    I made a Death Star for a quilt for my son. It didn't come out perfect on the edges so I don't want to just applique it on top of my quilt. Does anyone know if it's possible to sew it in? I've done a circle quilt before but the circle was cut into 4ths and put together that way. This is a full circle. Well, right now it's 2 half circles. Anyone know if I could just cut a circle in my quilt top and sew it in? Is this possible? Does that even make sense?

    Sure you can. Just make sure the circle you cut out has the seam allowance on it.

      IMG_0557.jpg Here's the Death Star. The quilt top is just strips of fabric. I could sew this in two sections if that even helps. If this is even possible. This circle is huge, at least 15"

          That's really cool! You could do reverse applique.

            To be sure it lay flat, I'd sew it on with machine or hand (whichever you prefer), then cut out the backing fabric... (If you have enough backing fabric.)

              Lorie - my first thought when I saw it was reverse applique also. By the way - that is just too darn cool! Great job on it.

                Lay the circle down on your backing, hand baste it into position, and hand applique to backing, then trim away that extra layer under the circle. Perfect. 15" is not that big.
