When I first purchased my AccuQuilt Studio™ Fabric Cutter, circle dies were among my first purchases. In fact, my very first die purchase was a custom circle with a pinked edge.
I have tried just about every circle cutting template, ruler, and tool on the market, and there simply isn’t anything else that will cut circles as quickly or as accurately. Circles are still among my favorite dies; my only regret is not finding AccuQuilt sooner!
There are many different sizes of standard circles in the Studio collection, ranging from 3/16" up to 8 1/2", and several dies come with multiple sizes on the die board. If you pre-fuse fabric before cutting circles, it can speed up appliqué projects and really cut down the time it takes to make a project. The larger circles are perfect for making a mock cathedral window quilt, which is the project I’ve chosen to demonstrate today.
This candle mat project takes about two hours start to finish, which makes this a perfect choice for a quick gift or a class, and the large circle is a great way for new quilters to get their feet wet sewing curves.
