Going in Circles – January UFO Challenge


Quilt #72



Going in Circles was #5 on my UFO Challenge from Patchwork Times and it is finished.

Going in Circles
This is my own original design and an experiment in transparencies.

I finished the quilting, added a sleeve and binding.

The label was changed to read 2007 – 2012. I had made the label and attached it when I started quilting it, only 5 years ago.

Revised label

I don't know why I did not finish it sooner, I kind of like it.

congrats Terry I too have been working with circles lately Have you tried the cut around ruler for set in circles? It is very slick. I didn't think of shadows but your work is very unique and interesting.
