Those of you who follow my blog (and there aren't many I'm afraid) are probably sick of looking at the previous post. So finally I've gotten around to writing another. Our local quilt guild will be having their show in September so I've been busy putting bindings and sleeves on quilts I've done in the past few years. For some reason once I finish the actually quilting I consider it done, despite the fact it will needs a sleeve and binding. Probably because I live in an older home with only 7' ceilings and lots of windows and furniture that prevent hanging larger quilts. So they stay wrapped on a swimming tube, unfortunately out of site. Anyway, this quilt was made about three years ago from a class I took called "Six Minute Circles" (I think from the book of the same name). It's become my favorite way to insert circles into a quilt.
The smaller piece is for a class I'll be taking at a Nancy Crow retreat in Baltimore, Ohio in mid-October. The class is with Sandra Ciolino on free motion quilting and we are to bring three similar pieces for quilting. I may have mentioned that I love circles. This is my first one for the class. The three pieces are to use fabrics with similar colors. I have yet to do the other two. I agonized for several weeks on what pattern to use and decided to go with my favorite circles. Til next time (hopefully sooner than two months...)
