Dream Catcher

I made this to practice sewing circles with my machine. I had this piece of fabric that I dyed several years ago and couldn't find a good use because it had so many colors and random marks on it. I was very happy that I finally found a good use for it. I'm pleased with the final result.

  1. I loved making dream catchers when I was younger so this brings back great memories. I’ve always thought the idea behind dream catchers is so neat–that they filter through only the good dreams. And I love the idea of a quilt dream catcher… I may have to make one of my own.

  2. I took one of my husband’s tie tacks that is very flat (a thumbtack will work, too) and taped it to the sewing machine point up. I had it lined up with the sewing machine needle and the distance to the left of the needle was the radius of the circle that I wanted to make. Then i put a stabilizer onto the fabric and impaled the fabric onto the point of the tie tack. The feed dogs moved the fabric forward and the tie tack made it turn in a circle. It was very easy. What I didn’t like about it, though was that it didn’t work with the 3 layers of the quilt. I had to sew the circles onto the quilt top fabric by itself and then quilt later.

    I looked at the quilts you’ve made and like them very much. I hope to quilt a mandala of some kind in the future.
