Nothing to do but post

Well, I'm sitting in a stairwell at work, waiting out a series of tornado warnings between here and home.  So what better time for a post?  

This quilt is one of my favorites!  I call it Circle 2.  (Hey, look at that...I made a superscript!) 

This quilt was for my friend's daughter.  My friend initially picked Tufted Tweets and we agreed on these circles for the pattern.  Then I suggested changing the circles to ovals to go with the Tweets.  Then she switched the fabric to It's a Hoot (I got most of mine here) and we went back to circles.  (But I was so in love with the oval + Tweets, that I made Kat and the Canary while I was waiting for fabric to arrive !  I'm getting off track though...see what happens when I'm stuck in a stairwell?!?)  I used the trees in green for the backing (you can see that in the picture below, behind the pillow) and plaid in green for the binding. The quilting pattern is concentric circles that radiate out to make concentric diamonds.  You can kinda see it in these pics. Admittedly, I am usually so excited to finish a quilt and send it off to its new family, that I forget to take all of the pictures I will need.  I think I'm going to have to make a checklist for my future photo shoots though!  I will try to be better about this!  


I also made a matching pillow!

And here it is in its new home!  (Isn't the room amazing?!?  I want my friend to decorate my house!)
Oooh, there's a break in the storms and my route has been downgraded to a watch...gotta run!  Hope you like Circle2 !!
