I loved my “Phased Circles” quilt that I finished in 2014. I wanted to see if I can use the underlying blocks in another design. Could I make another design but make it different enough??
I came up with this monochromatic design which is one of my favorites. I love the the graduation of black to dark grey to light grey, the use of prints and solids and finally the mix of low volumes. The circles are much larger than the phased circles design, and a little simpler but a little more complexity and non-symmetrical with the outer blocks/areas.
I was lucky in two ways with this quilt. One, the US post office didn’t loose my quilt (it was sent twice, returned once) and two, lucky enough that Love Patchwork and Quilting loved it too. It is one of the projects featured in this month’s issue (issue 31) . Can you believe this? ….. all of the fabrics in this quilt came from my existing stash.
The binding is one of my favorite things about the quilt. I kept it solid “blocked” on the right side and then used Carolyn Friedlander’s Doe Sharp and a splash of Alison Glass’ Grove in Neon (Handcrafted).
The quilting for the circles were 1/2″ vertical lines while the rest of the quilt is quilted using 1″ horizontal lines.
I hope you check it out in the new issue.This makes my second finish for the year.
