Description

I was inspired by this print by Gary Andrew Clark.  I really wanted the finished piece to have the pop of the dark grey/blacks in the print... without using such dark colors.  I choose blues and yellows (because that's what I have a lot of) hoping the blues would translate like the blacks in the print ~ however, some of the yellows are very densely saturated, so that look kind of went out the window.  Instead I put the brights together to make lines of circles, which ended up looking fine. 

I used a drunkards path template from Tabslot (awesome!) This will end up being about 36"x 36", so it's much smaller than most of my quilts, but I really want to practice some denser quilting on this so I can be ready to quilt the dragon soon.

I finally got to quilting this... and I learned a lot.  I will not use a chalk pencil again - at least for quilting purposes.  The chalk got stuck under the stitches and didn't totally wash out.  BUT I did have a lot of fun quilting little sputniks!

I like how this is turning out. It's not like your original concept, but I really like the circles for a baby.
