I couldn't wait to get this back from the quilters. I think it's my second favorite quilt that I've ever made (of course that's really not saying much since I've only been quilting for 1 year,I suppose). Nevertheless, this one was really fun to do with the bright colors and curved pieces. Not only that, but the pattern was free on the Joel Dewberry website. (I wish I could link you there, but my blogging skills have not included linking yet. Duh!! LOL) You'll have to look it up yourself I'm afraid. So sorry!! Joel made his smaller and used a border, but since I'm not crazy about borders on bigger quilts for some reason, I choose to make mine bigger using more squares and thus, more circles. So FUN!!
When I was piecing this, my daughter stopped in, saw it and fell in love. Sheepishly, she asked me who was the recipient and when I told her I didn't know, her face lit up and she claimed it as her own. Of course, after that, how could I not give it an appropriate name???
I'm so happy to be showing you because I really like this one too!! May I present: "Circles of Love"
And a close-up of the front:
And naturally, the back......I took this on the kitchen floor:
One more to show you the awesome quilting on the back:
So, there she is!! Finished it ended up at 55" by 66 ". Just perfect for a great nap. I sure hope you don't ask me about fabrics and designers because I NEVER pick my fabrics based on designers or lines, but only on colors and compatibility. Who knows where many of the popular designers will be in 20 years, but the colors will still be the same and that's all that matters to me. If I like certain fabrics together, that's half the battle!!! Try it sometime. You might be better at the coordination than you think.
