  My circle quilt

My circle quilt
Originally uploaded by Sponky's Modern Life.
This is another circle quilt, slightly more muted tones that Kathryn's one. I made this to use up the squares that I had made for Kathry's quilt that didn't go with the overall scheme, but as these things always turn out, ended up having to buy about 1/2 the quilt again!

Quilting also done as curves with a walking foot, but I think the curves were TOO curvy or short or something, because this quilting had ALOT more mistakes thatn the first one, but I am keeping this, so who cares. I think the lesson learnt here is there is a limit to what you can do with a walking foot.

Still in two minds about the backing fabric. It mostly goes with the front but the green is kinda wacky.

This was pinned with the cool new table Paul built for me to do pinning on. It sits on top on a card table and is made out of craft wood, with lots of overhang to clip the layers to. It much much better than just a card table - only had to pin the entire thing once (rather than the two stage pinning I had to do on Kathryn's quilt)
