This photo is from when almost all of the circles were made – there was no “design” in play – just lots of circles on background squares sewed in rows. I’m having a little computer problem this evening so not a lot of story going into this and I hope to get it published with no problem! I hope you all go visit Amy’s blog and if you have time see all the quilts entered. Lots of beautiful quilts displayed.
Here are some of the circles up close -some circles I used just one color for others I made a small circle from left overs and put it in the middle or off to the side like it was a planet. From some of the leftovers I sewed strips together and then cut out a circle from that and appliqued in place. I really made use of the tiniest pieces.
Simple quilting – by hand – the circles were applique by hand also – another fossil fern for the backing of the quilt. All of the fabric in this quilt is Fossil Fern cotton.
The whole quilt finished and on the bed
The quilt finished at about 103 inches I believe. I had a lot of fun making this quilt and used wool batting so it makes a good winter quilt. I found I could not make just one circle a day – some days I would make 7 or 8! I finished the quilt in a year and that includes the hand quilting too.
Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
