I'm just documenting the way that seems to work for me to make the three piece bullseye or target block.
|Check to be sure the pieces are placed correctly.|
|Press to show the center of the curves.|
|Flip the fabric so right sides are together and pin the centers together.|
|Pin the edges, and then add additional pins. |
When pinning the larger piece is below, then it will be easier to pin with matching edges.
|Bring to the machine and sew with the larger piece on the top. |
Slow sewing and realize perhaps some adjusting of the top fabric will be needed.
|The seam will be done!|
|TaDah! The edges match and there are no pleats.|
|Press to show the center again.|
|Flip the pieces so the right sides are facing and pin the centers together.|
|Pin the edges, then the center of each side. And repeat!|
|When pinning it seems to be easier to put the larger piece below.|
|Take the piece to the machine and sew so the larger piece is on the top.|
|The second seam is done!|
|Press so the seams go toward the ring.|
|If you place the extra ring fabric within the sewn ring you will see how it all fits together!|
|Pressed with no pleats and the edges match.|
This block was made as part of the Block Lotto in January 2012.
