A couple of weeks ago I put together a quilt top to use as a demonstration for my Concentric Circles Quilting Tutorial.
I finally decided to put a binding on this little guy and call it officially done!!
I love how this quilt top came together using almost all leftover/unused HST’s from an abandoned project. I think I had to make a few more to create the right number for a square, but otherwise it was kind of halfway done for me.
I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to do with them until I remembered Katie of Sew Katie Did’s amazing Pantone Pop Quilt! I love how the random order subtly creates some interesting and surprising patterns. Even though I had some patterned material in there, I thought it could still work. So as usual, I just went for it!!!
I also love the idea of off setting the main piece within the whole quilt, something I also played with on my Little Lotta Chevron Quilt.
The circular quilting was super fun and easy on a small quilt like this. If I were to do this design again, I would likely offset the circle, starting near a corner and working out from there.
But I still like the way it turned out and now need to find just the right wall for it! Here it is on a temporary wall space. The lighting indoors is so different from outside, I had a hard time finding a decently lit wall. It gives a slightly different perspective though- yes?
Hope your week is amazing!!! If you’re finding time for some circle quilting, I’d love to hear how it’s going!
