Well, let’s make that the last quilt of 09 and the first quilt of 2010 done. Whatever, it’s done and that makes me happy!
~I had the hardest time taking pictures, I had to go outside and chase the sunshine!
The quilt pattern is called the “Roundabout Quilt” by Amy of a Commonplace Life. The first time I saw her completed quilt’s and her tutotial for her pattern, I knew I wanted to make one. I just loved it from the start.
I will say I was nervous about piecing circles but I got over it, quickly. I love circles. They are easy. I was pinning and pinning at first, but soon I just kind of lined them up and let it rip. It was fun!!
Here is the back, I wanted a little bit of calm here, as opposed to the wild jumble of color on the front. I just made a few more blocks then pieced with Kona cotton “Snow” to complete the back. I used Kona “Bahama Blue” or something like that for the binding, again going for a little calm.
This quilt is for my daughter Emma, I had promised her a quilt and it took me forever to get around to it. I just had to have the right fabric, the right pattern, and I think this is what I wanted for her. I call it my “Circle of Love” quilt for her, so she will always remember that she is surrounded with love. Corny, but true!
A quilt is never done until it is photographed, so now it is in her possession and she is really happy. That makes me happy!
~I think I LOVE it! So happy and colorful! Thank you Amy for sharing this wonderful pattern! It is genius!
