We have loved basketball ever since we met in high school 56 years ago! So not much quilting is happening this weekend.
But this morning I am prepping small circles and small leaves for Block #3 of the Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt. The free pattern can be found (Here) or (Here) Two websites are putting this free pattern out to quilters, and the block patterns are offered one a month.
The cherries are quite small and there are 16 of them on this block. I use Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles (her website) and gather the fabric around the template with a running stitch. Then I wet the circle in water, and let it dry before removing the template. I will remove the running stitch and cut the fabric close to the sewing edge just before I applique the berries to the block. Here's a picture of the back side:
