Some More Circle Inspiration

The circle quilt is coming along. I have about 10 of my 29 circles appliqued on. And I love how it is turning out. I've got a drive ahead this weekend as we travel for a surgery consult, so I should have lots of progress to report on next week. In the meantime, I thought I would share some other circle inspiration.

Sandra Saunders produced Grandma's Hands Quilt. This is an amazing quilt - combining a family album concept, hand prints, and glorious circles. make sure you click through to her Flickr stream for a process pictures and a tutorial on how to do those reverse applique hands.

Red Thread Adoption Quilt is a simple, yet extraordinary quilt. This is so for the story behind the piece, but also in the construction and fabric choices. Using the 6 minute circle it includes outlines in dark fabric, as opposed to just circles. And even some low volume spots like the project I have going on.

For a simple, modern quilt that makes circles the focus check out Sun and Moon. So often circles are bright and bold. This is still bold, but there is a softness to this quilt I adore. And check out that quilting!

One of my favourite Flickr finds has been this Turquoise Circles quilt by Peppermint Pinwheels. It might be the scrappy nature of the circles, the red binding, or that gorgeous turquoise, but it all works for me.

This one isn't finished, yet, but I can't get it out of my head.  The colours, the story, the pieced circles, they are all good. Jacquie is showing another winner, in my books.

So many circles, so little time.
