Description

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this fabric when I saw the blue and white layer cake.  I wanted to make a circle quilt so I borrowed my mom's circle cutter and started cutting.  Initially I was going to do only the blue and white circles, then I decide to use the blue and white cut away as well.  This meant I needed to find another white layer cake which took a while cuz none of my local quilt shops had any.  I found it on a shop hop I was on a couple of weeks ago.  I finished assembling the top at a retreat we had this week and now I need to work on the quilt motif to liven up the white circle which are a bit blah.   I've scanned the fabric into the computer and am working on a quilt motif based on those scans.  

May 27, 2015 Well I finally go this finished.  I struggled with the quilt motifs for the circles but finally came up with 3 I thought went the fabric.  I wasn't able to get the circle quilting with the fabric circles exactly but I was pretty happy with it.  The robot quilting took about 20 minutes per square and there are 72 squares.  It was on the frame for weeks.   I think I'm going to put this on my bed even though it doesn't match anything.

I love that you utilized the cutouts! Looks great and awesome quilting!

Ibtreerock thanks. using the cutouts was originally planned but when I put it up on the design wall with just the blue circles it was lack luster.

Mymble

Wonderful quilt - and your quilting just adds to it beautifully!

HawkFan

Great finish. You did a wonderful job with the circles - something I have yet to master

Mymble HawkFan thanks so much for the comments. Hawkfan I just appliqued the circle to a white layer cake so it was a piece of cake (pun intended).
