I have already started a new quilt….I know I am being super productive at the moment. I actually started this last week and had given you all a peek at it with the inner circles completed.
Name: “Phased Circles”
Fabric: Mix of Carolyn Friedlander’s Architextures and Botanic lines; and the solids are all new Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons (Green=Wasabi, Blue=Prussian, Pink=Valentine, Jade=Breakers, Orange=Torch, Yellow=Curry).
Look, I changed the background of the circles, and used lower-volume prints in the same color (where possible). The quilt top is already half completed – I am awaiting a delivery of solids for the other side to be completed.
I have not completely decided on the top and bottom borders being 10 inches, it feels at this stage a little too much. I might once it is completed but them back to around 5 inches.
I reversed needle-turn appliqué the circles in the backgrounds, which was the first time I tried this. I did started with a test block as I didn’t want to start right on the real thing. I was so impressed with this one, I moved on to the rest of them. I will have a tutorial ready for Friday to show you how to make your block…surprisingly they are relatively quick.
My June goal for ALYOF (a lovely year of finishes – see button on right) is to finish this quilt – quilt top, quilted, and bound.
