Circles..........


Remember these blocks?  I am going to end up making two wallhangings and there are more blocks left over for a third project.  I have been dragging my feet on getting the center circles made and ready for appliqueing.  Two friends came over to sew yesterday so it was a perfect day to tackle it.
The fabric is green cotton woven one direction and red metallic in the other direction.  They are turned 2 different directions here.

It will be a challenge to get them all turned the same way on the wallhangings.








I have two circles left to prepare.

love the blocks - I would have dragged my feet too on the appliques :)

Mary said...

That is a tedious step, and best done in company. Are you going to machine or hand applique the circles in place?

Kathy said...

Why try to have the circles all go the same way? Different directions will give a different glow to every glance as the quilt is hanging!

Gene Black said...

I like Kathy's idea of having them go in different directions.

I have loved this quilt, but know my own technical limitations. I found this quilt which gives a similar look and downloaded the pattern (and a couple of other ones, too).
http://karengriskaquilts.blogspot.com/2014/03/ferris-wheel-fan-quilt-and-pattern.html. I think I could actually make this one. And I bought Asterisk and Fine line. I love this look you have up on the wall.

Always fun to catch up with your posts. As usual you have kept busy and productive. Your mug rugs always make me smile. Two more dish clothes made with such pretty spring colors. And oh those peonies, such big and fluffy blossoms. And I agree, I would put your brilliant yellow prim rose in every garden also.

We have been gone to Seattle for our Grand-daughters H.S. graduation. 700 in her class ! Graduation was held in the Tacoma Dome. LONG sitting for all those graduates to get their diploma's.

Your two pieces are great. Did you decide not to make one larger quilt, or was that your intention at the beg6600inning?

One of these days I am going to make these blocks. They are on my list.

I learned a neat way to fuse circles to sew down by stitching and gathering around template with fusible thread. learned it at a John Flynn retreat and it works slick.

Interesting fabric!

Charlotta said...

That circle fabric is amazing; I definitely thought it was two different fabrics until you explained!
I love these blocks and can't wait to see the final wall hangings.

Cathi said...

Those circles are fabulous! I like the idea of not having them go all the same way too.
The quilts are going to be fabulous once you're finished.
