Quilting Arts and Singer present the “Quilting Circles” Reader Challenge


Want to be in the running to win a new SINGER quilting and sewing machine? 


Create a 12” square quilt block with at least one full circle incorporated into the design. You can stitch it, appliqué it, or use fabrics or embellishments with circle designs. Employ circles as part of an abstract, geometrical, or symmetrical design. Or create a pictorial circle motif like the sun, beach balls, rings, the moon, buttons, manhole covers, or paint can lids―anything that is circular in design. The choice is yours!
