Circle of Nine — A unique new system for arranging any nine quilt blocks into a creative quilt setting. You can use nine identical blocks, a combination of two or three blocks or nine different blocks for a circle of nine sampler.
A circle of nine setting uses spacers instead of sashings. Spacers can be cut from a focus fabric or they can incorporate patchwork or appliqué designs to enhance the quilt blocks.
There are 24 quilts in the book to see and make, each with fully illustrated easy-to-follow instructions.
