I was only going to make a few of these blocks just to learn the technique. Then I got completely obsessive! This has become my favourite quilt, I would never have made this block as i didn't really like it very much but it just shows you, making something out of your normal style can have very rewarding results. Thank you very much for this class.

Wow! That is just lovely and soft and so pretty! Excellent job!

The gentle curves and light color palette allow the circular quilting to stand out.. It is a very pleasing departure from vibrant batiks I am used to seeing. How did you quilt it? Did you use a walking foot? Or was this quilted on a longarm?

Hi there, I quilted with ideas from the class, creative quilting with your walking foot. I don't have a walking foot as I use Pfaff sewing machine. Just adjust needle position to be 1/2 inch from left or right side of foot and keep foot along edge of previous quilted circle. Pic doesn't do it justice as some of the unquilted circles or part circles kind of appear and disappear amongst the other quilted rings. If that makes sense. Thanks for positive comments.

Soft and beautiful.

These soft subtle curves are simply beautiful. Thanks for encouraging me to step out of my "brilliant color palette." I find myself scooting my eyes all over this quilt to see what I can see. I think it shows me that I can use all lights to create a stunning piece. This quilt would go with any decor.
