I LOVE Circles

I made some very fun improv quilt blocks quite a few years ago. The class was presented by Melody Randol in Colorado. 

If you ever have a chance to catch a class from Melody – I totally recommend it – she is fantastic.

The class was held with our guild and it was way before I understood improv or even scrappy quilting – before I had even really heard of scrappy quilting. Her class spoke to me. 

She said just lay the fabric out and lets’ start cutting.
Oh my – I had such fun.   

And then, I put them in a box, and sort of kept working with them as I had time…

Of course I was using some of the Kaffe Fasset fabrics I had found at a quilt shop , way before I even really knew who he was! so that was a real draw - I love those bright colors....

Fast forward a few years - I Finally Pulled the thing back out again and made it into a quilt top.

THEN!!  I quilted Circles ALL over it - I just LOVE this texture!

Circle circles everywhere

Don't you just love how it moves across the quilt?

And the final result!!

Got a quilt you would like circles Quilted on?

I just wanted to share a few snippets of the quilts I have quilted this year.

I find that I really like to look back at my blogs to find things 
 so I had better post them more often ;-)

Plus maybe as you are looking at the photos, you might think of a quilt top you have laying around, that you would like this pattern quilted on it.
I can help you with that!

This one is called Paisley - and it looks so great on so many different quilts!

Obviously - this one is called Footballs

And this is a tiny feather - I quilted them to interlock

Stars a Waving

Today I am sharing a quilt with you that I designed -
This was designed as a Quilt of Valor, but I can see it done in a few different colorways.

The first one was made in Plaids:

And the second one with Star Prints on the solids

This pattern is for sale in my Craftsy Store

Flashing back a bit

I am going to flash back a bit today - this is a client quilt that she liked - but was a little blah about.

Sh wasn't sure she liked so much plain fabric in the quilt ....

and so:

we added a TON of texture

This turned out great - 
she didn't want feathers as we had just feathered the heck out of another quilt of hers

Isn't that fun?

abstract Purple

My client wanted to play with her purples and make something Modern and Abstract....

I think she succeeded!

Isn't that cool?   I quilted Swirls and pebbles and squares all over it
