What materials did you use? Improv blocks were used to create the background piece for a Reverse Circles block. I also used improv blocks for the circle.

I love the energy and surprise of these improv pieces blocks and circles. I can't wait to try this!

Wow---these are really compelling!

Thanks. Looking at these again and wishing I could play with them a little more now. So many ideas and too little time!

This looks like such fun to make! I like working with Christmas fabrics and I think this would work particularly well in suggesting classic round ornaments in reds/golds with various green backgrounds.

That's a great idea Nora!

I really like this. Can you tell me what technique was used?. I've finished the class and so know about applique and inset circles. Which is it?

Sorry about that... I used the reverse technique to make these. I started with blocks that were improv pieced (leftovers from a Denyse Schmidt, actually). Then I created freezer paper templates and made the circles with the standard technique for reverse circles.

These were made using the Reverse circle technique.
