Since I don't like sewing without ironing my seams, I have to take a short break from quilting-a very short one.
In the mean time, check out my Circles quilt. I made this as a gift for a friend's daughter's first birthday a couple of months ago. The pattern is from the gorgeous Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. She has this pattern in her book "Growing Up Modern" as well; in the book it is Jack and Jill. I used the measurements on her blog for the circles due to the size of my scraps and the design in her book. I think I couldn't quite adjust the measurements of the borders, hence I ended up with half pieces on either sides. At least I am consistent LOL.
See the half red pieces on the sides? :)
I did free motion swirls in the circles and a basic meandering on the rest of the quilt.
A red binding finished off the quilt so well.
I had so much fun with making this quilt. You can make it as scrappy as you like or just stick to a few colour combinations. Either way, I am sure you will have fun along the way.
