I have started to follow Sew Slowly. She just posted about some holes she is putting in her top. This is very intriguing to me. I love the way that quilts wear, so I love the idea of holes in a quilt top. She has pretty clear photos of what she is doing. She is hand working her quilt. I decided to use her technique but by machine.
Here is a nice four patch that did not line up the way I would like. I prepared a square quite a bit larger than my intended hole with my stitch line already marked.
Then, I stitched around the circle and cut out the center. I then heavily clipped the seam allowance.
Then turn to the back.
Here is the finished front:
Now to decide what should go in the hole.
