Almost...........just 8 more blocks

This is the latest batch of blocks that I made last night.









I have mixed them into the group but I'll have to do a little more shuffling when I get the last 8 done because they can't all go in the bottom corner.  The circles will be more prominent when the blocks are sewn together. 

There are 72 that will go in this quilt and then I'll take all of the identical pieces and mix them up and make another 72 scrappy blocks for another quilt.  I wonder how well the circles show if the quilt is laying flat (as in bed quilt) or if it needs to be a wallhanging where you always look across at it.

They look great on the wall now. Maybe you can get the last few done and get it sewn together. As far as laying on a bed I think you will determine it when the pieces are all in place. It will look great either place. Chris

Looking good. I find you can emphasize the circles with the quilting. I know you don't like to quilt following lines, but it would be seriously worth it on this one. Go on you know you's love it!

They look fabulous. I really love the hidden circles throughout the quilt. I can't imagine that they would disappear when it is flat.

The more you make, the better it looks! I love the way the bright green ones make the quilt twinkle.

That's looking great! I love how the circles play in light and dark patches.

I really like the hits of green in that.

Beautiful!! So far I've only made a small Winding Ways wallhanging and, for what it's worth, I can see the circles even when it's laying flat rather than hanging up.

Hello! I have followed you making these blocks and I just love it! How wonderful those 'hidden' circles are! I continue still something more easy but one day I shall use this beautiful block!
Thank you again for an inspiration!
What about quilting circles but instead of following the 'lines', more inside to catch the 'outside corners' of every triangel?
Sunny wishes from Crete! Teje
