Circles

 Circles......... I am still in the blue bin of saved pieces.  The one on the left is a bit of Liberty of London fabric my daughter bought me over 10 years ago.  I only have odd scraps of it left.
  The dark blue is the last of its kind......and a smaller circle size.   I think a few of this size tossed in will be a little quirky and fun.






 A little play time for creativity-------This circle is not for the Quilty 365.....just inspired by it.
   The block is 9''  with appliqued and collaged bits of floral fabrics.   I am not sure what I will do with it, but it was a fun couple of hours just figuring out how to pull it together.   This one is completely fused, and ended up a bit stiff because of the layers.   I may try a couple  more to create a banner.




  One quilt quilted. This one got a very large stipple and it was done in in just over an hour.  A scrappy binding waits and it will be finished.  Two more to go.

Plans in the works:

  • I have just added the border to my Let's Book It project.   This month will be an easy finish.
  • Since the Quilty 365 circles is a year long project, I have been hunting for a new project.  I have 2 that I am considering.  
  • New fabric arrived for another special pillowcase.  That will get cut and sewn up today.
Remember to enjoy what you do......happy stitching.

  1. Your circles drew me in and I am intrigued by them. I love your appliquéd circle with the flowers and butterfly. I shall be reviewing some of your previous posts too. 2016 will be an amazing year...

  2. I like the appliqued circle, even if it's bigger you should show it off to the circle crowd someone may want to do it only smaller.

  3. I think it will be visually appealing to have a few different sized circles sprinkled in.
    To me it is so relaxing to quilt a large stipple. Just get in the zone and go! : )

  4. I can see the collaged circle as part of an oriental style long narrow hanging. So pretty. The idea of showcasing favorite scraps of fabric in our circles quilt squares will make them all the more special when they are finally completed. I know several of my favorites are too small for complete circles but will probably be pieced with harmonizing fabrics and the resulting circle will have two or three fabric pieces. That is, if I decide to make all 365 the same size. Lots of time yet for changing up the final plan.
