As it turns out, I’m adding quite a few little “bobbles” to my curvy vine. It makes me smile, and we all need a little “brightness” in the winter.
My friend Lynne Bassett is making a “life size” version and it is thus far sensational.
I’ll settle for my half pint for now.
These circles and colors keep beckoning me back to the scrap baskets. I now know why artists often work in a series. I see many more circle quilts in my future.
Enjoy your day!
What a beautiful circle quilt in progress...Love those cheddar borders with the bobbles on them...nice workReplyDelete
Your border choices are really giving an added "zing" to the overall quilt. Brilliant, Wendy!ReplyDelete
The first thing that came to mind when I saw your photo of the borders was that old Temptations song "I've got sunshine on a cloudy day, and when it's cold outside I've got the month of May." Exuberantly sunshiny borders! Loving this more and more every time you add your special touches!ReplyDelete
The borders are turning out to be quite playful. I just want to smile. It's even better that you are enjoying the process so much. That's the way it's supposed to be but unfortunately isn't always what happens.ReplyDelete
The borders are looking good! I love the "folk art" feel of the entire quilt. You are seriously tempting me to make another circle quilt myself, but if I add any more appliqué to my "to do" list I'll drown! :)ReplyDelete
Looking great Wendy!ReplyDelete
LOVE the "bobbles" you've added to tone down that yellow border!! Of course, I loved the bright border all on its own, too. :o))ReplyDelete
Oh Wendy, I love this! The border is perfect.ReplyDelete
I'm thinking of making one with wool. What size are your circles and squares?
So much energy and movement in the border and the whole quilt with the fabrics you select, just says "Wendy" - just delightful!ReplyDelete
This is so much fun ..... I'm tempted to start one too! I have lots of repro charm squares .....ReplyDelete
It is perfect. Very strikingReplyDelete
Love it--I can see how it could become addictive! It must have been lots of fun going through your stash and matching up those fabrics!ReplyDelete
The added bubbles are just the thing to make a zing!ReplyDelete
I became enamored with circles on quilts during Quilty 365. Your added circles are great - with that yellow background they make me think of Mardi Gras!ReplyDelete
I love this border choice. It really adds an extra something to your top. Its been fun to see all the fabric variations of this circle top.ReplyDelete
Love your bright border addition and the applique touches are just wonderful!:)ReplyDelete
The more the more better!ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing Lynn's quilt and the antique too.
Oh, what a wonderful border! The bobbles you are adding look great. I can't imagine making a full size quilt but see how those circles can become addictive.ReplyDelete
It is so charming! What a great border!ReplyDelete
Your version is great, Wendy -- the vines and bobbles add such dimension.ReplyDelete
