“Little Circles” Quilt is Done
The back story on this quilt is that when I did the very first Color Collective project, big circles were involved. When I cut the centers out on the back side, I had all these little circles. (There was also a trial small project from my own solid fabric first—and some of those circles are in this quilt.)
I couldn’t throw these little circles away. They sat in my “to do” pile for almost two years. This past summer I made templates for them that allowed me to make the circles uniform (that was Tara Faughnan’s method), and mounted them on the grey fabric, and the rest is history.
And I love this little quilt.
I quilted it on my domestic, and that was fun too. I love how the back came out.
Here’s the original quilt with the big circles—and I combined projects and 1 and 2 from The Color Collective in this quilt.
And here’s my little sample quilt before I cut into Tara Faughnan’s color palette for this project:
Can I just say that I made myself throw out the grey circles that arrived when I cut out the backs of the little circles I had mounted!!!
I was tempted though…
