What to do when a pattern calls for pre-cut cirlces and they are not available. One could use dies to cut the fabrics. Rulers to cut circles are helpful, or one could create a stencil with card stock to create the circles.
Placement on this quilt is key. Getting everything perfectly aligned in a circle is very important.
Due to this, I created a paper layout plan, which I drafted from scratch.
This is how to create it:
Draw one pie piece, then using my original stencil, I work out where the circles will fit.
It will look like this.
Then I used Roxanne applique glue and glued each piece in place.
To make sure I got no glue on the table or my paper pattern, the plastic tablecloth protected both.
When it came to placing my orbs or circles, it took me less than twenty minutes, preparing the paper layout first, was the best course of action. Especially with a white background fabric.
When sewing with white fabric, to keep it pristine white, wash your hands every half an hour. This prevents any of the natural oils from the skin to transfer onto the fabric. The white is unforgiving, worth the end result, as it looks clean and fresh when it is finished.
