Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2013: Improv Circles Wall Quilt

Welcome! I have enjoyed participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival tremendously over the last year and I have been looking forward to its return. This year we can select 2 quilts to enter which somehow made the choice even more difficult.

This Improv Circles quilt was really the first time I have just picked up the fabric and my rotary cutter and started making something.  Generally my process involves a lot of thought, a lot of Flickr perusing, and plenty of indecision.  It was so fun to just go somewhere unexpected with this quilt.

When I started working on this, I intended to make an entire throw size quilt.  But by the time I made a few blocks I knew that I wanted this to be something that I could see every day.  

Finished size: 30"x30"
Materials:  Kaffe Fassett shot cottons
Quilted by: Me
Quilt category: Wall Hanging

Thanks for stopping by, I am looking forward to checking out the other quilts that are shared in the festival!
