Circle tie effect gives an old fashioned tied quilt look. The foot stitches out a circle then leads the thread to the next circle without ever crossing over loops between circles and ends at the beginning of the next repeat circle. This design starts at the top left circle and ends at the top left circle in the next repeat which is not seen in this drawing. However, there is a LOT of thread snipping between circles after quilting. Can also be used to baste quilt layers for future hand quilting if the stitch length is set to a long stitch with no tie offs.
