These past few days I've turned my attention back to the circle game.
This is a project that a friend and I have been working on together, but I had a little catching up to do. I had foolishly left all of the appliqued circles until the end. Not recommended! Though, the good thing in all of this is I finally remembered how to applique. :)
These blocks have been quite the *growth* experience for us. We started our quilts roughly two years ago and were confident we could handle machine piecing a pattern designed for hand piecing... As we near the end of this quilt, I'm glad to report - Yes we can! But there were definitely some sticky points along the way.
One of the things I love about working on this quilt with a friend, besides the great company, is seeing just how much fabric choices can impact a pattern. We've both gone in quite different directions from the pattern.
Block 10 - my friend's
Block 3 - my friend's
Both of these blocks were simple to make. Lots of straight lines, even if the end results was a circle.
