What's on my wall today!

Good morning!

Today I'm working on a quilt for a friend of mine's niece.  This is a variation of the Marcia Hohn pattern called "The Bountiful Quilt".  It's made by appliqueing circles on circles.  The resulting top is a bit heavier than your standard pieced quilt.  I know this because I've made this pattern once before without cutting out the circles after I have layered them, so this time I have cut out the backs of the covered circles to make it less heavy.  I am doing raw edge applique.  It makes for a really eye catching design and is a great way to use up your stash!

Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Really pretty - I like the fabric pieces you put in between the circles as well. Makes such interesting shapes that way.

  2. Great contrast with the black.

  3. This is way cool. Love the circles, but also the diamond shapes in between. Lovely!
