Love this! Very eye catching, great colors and design. This type of quilt project is actually on my to do list, but I haven't gotten the nerve up to tackle the circular piecing, so kudos to you. How on earth did you get your quilting circles/swirls to be so round and evenly spaced? I'm impressed.

Thanks Quiltdude. I actually appliqued rather than piecing these circles so that was a bit easier. I haven't yet tackled curved piecing yet either. For the quilting, I used a spiral quilting stencil and just overlapped it a little each time. It was really fun to quilt. So nice to meet dudes that quilt, by the way. Best wishes!

Thanks... yes, there are a few of us quilting dudes out there! Nice to meet you too. I keep looking at this quilt and smiling, you have inspired me to give circles a try.

Thank you! I really enjoyed quilting this one. It had been a UFO before I found the spiral stencil.
