How to Get the Most out of This Chapter TRY THE DESIGNS IN DIFFERENT-SHAPED BLOCKS. Since diamond-shaped blocks are similar to squares (think of diamonds as evenly wonky squares), the designs in this chapter can be used in a number of different shapes. Try them in squares or rectangles—I think you will find they are easily adaptable. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. If you can’t find a diamond design that will work for your quilt, you can divide the diamond into two triangles and use a design from the Triangles chapter.

STARTS AT THE CENTER OF THE BLOCK, WHICH MEANS IT TAKES A LITTLE LONGER, BUT THE RESULT IS DEFINITELY WORTH IT. TRY QUILTING THIS DESIGN IN CIRCLES OF DIFFERENT SIZES. TIP I don’t worry about finding the exact center when quilting this design; I usually just eyeball it. In my opinion, close enough is good enough! 2. Quilt a ribbon candy design, working your way around the spiral and filling in the space as consistently as possible. Return to the starting point. VARIATIONS If you want more contrast in your quilting design, try quilting dense backand-forth lines instead of the ribbon candy design.

But before we begin, a few thoughts about quilting circles: WHAT ABOUT STITCHING IN-THE-DITCH? I personally like to quilt in the seams around the blocks in a quilt. Even though staying on the curves of a circle can be a bit tricky, I still quilt around them. I love how the quilting sets off the circular shape. But it is not absolutely necessary, so do what works for you! CHECK OUT OTHER CHAPTERS. Many of the designs I have created for squares and hexagons can be used in circle-shaped blocks. The reverse is also true.
