Adventures in Circles

By Leigh E. McDonald
That Patchwork Place; $26.95

I’ve always liked circles. A favorite family story is the time I attacked my father’s business papers with the hole punch. And, of course, polka dots make me smile. So did the circle quilts in Leigh McDonald’s book. Leigh’s success with circles comes from cutting them with the Olfa circle cutter and using either a fusible-web or freezer-paper qppliqué technique. Her designs could be adapted to other construction methods; she just prefers those. In addition to basic technique instructions, the book includes eight different circle quilt projects and several pages of fanciful quilting designs to complete the quilt. I found her designs a lot of fun.
