Woohoo, I have something on my design wall! The pattern is from Moda Bake Shop - Urban Shades
I feel like it's been sew long since I've really had anything on the design wall
I also finished quilting a baby quilt for a local quilt shop. The fabric used was one of their new collections Sphere by Zen Chic - LOVE LOVE LOVE this line of fabrics. No surprise they requested circles for this one. Another Moda Bake Shop pattern - Stacked Coins Baby Quil
t - 2 charm packs, some background material and you're set with an adorable Baby Quilt. Batting is quilter dream cotton - is there anything softer, love that batting! Bottom line on both top and bottom. I wanted to use a very thin thread on top because there is a little bit of overlap on the circles and that's a bit of thread play. But with a thin thread it just sinks in and you can't even see it.

I have one more quilt that was quilted last night and I'll update this post as soon as I get some pictures.
On those circles a few people saw yesterdays post with Round and Round
which had circles in a more uniform pattern and a few have asked how I did them. Well, it wasn't really me, it was the Hartley Fence that came with my long arm machine. It seriously makes perfect circles! I can't even mess them up :) It does take a bit longer to complete a quilt with these perfect circles, you have to start and stop with each and every circle, so it's slow going. But man, what a great impact they have. I don't use this much but every time I do, I love the results. If you have a Hartley Fence and haven't used it, check out the videos on You Tube, Hartley Fence Circles 1 - 3
you won't be disappointed.
