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?

  1. This is gorgeous! With how busy the fabric is, laying it on so much negative space is absolutely perfect. This quilt makes me smile. I love circles too, they were the first free-motion design I fell in love with. Yours looks perfect though. Did you do it freehand or with a computer? Can I ask what kind of longarm you have?
