Say hello to summer with a playful wall hanging that commemorates the carefree days of the season. Appliquéd circles replicate the look of curved piecing, and stripes arranged in opposing directions create energy.

Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" above for pattern pieces. Cut brown tone-on-tone inner and outer border strips lengthwise (parallel to the selvages). To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. To make a full-size circle Pattern A, trace half-circle A pattern two times on a large piece of paper, matching fold lines.

2. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over full-size circle patterns A and B. Use a pencil to trace each pattern 16 times, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web circle roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines. (To avoid stiff appliqué centers, cut about 1⁄4" inside traced lines of each fusible-web circle and discard centers.)

3. Set aside fusible-web A circles.

4. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press each fusible-web B circle onto wrong side of aqua tone-on-tone; let cool. Cut out B circle appliqués on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
