Earthly Delights by Karen Kay Buckley
“Earthly Delights” by Karen Kay Buckley

Dear Quilters,

Last month on Quilt Out Loud! Mark took us on a tour of Karen Kay Buckley’s gorgeous, neat, efficient, serene (shall I go on?) studio. Now that we’ve seen where she creates, let’s see how she creates.

This month Karen shows me how she makes those perfect circles that she appliques on her quilts: In multiples and in many sizes. Yes, she’s had a lot of practice so not only is she extremely proficient at making them, she has developed a technique and a tool to help you make prefect circles and ovals as well. Watch the show and learn how easy it is!

Happy quilting,
