Circles

I have been playing with Circles these days. In a Quilting Arts Magazine from a couple of months ago I tried a process where you have several squares of fabric stacked and you machine stitch a free form spiral. After you have sewn the spiral you cut the circle in quarters and then you trim away some of the layers.
This is the results of my experimentation. It has been fun. I have stitched tole over the top of these and quilted them in place. I now have a fun and very colorful table runner. It was fun to do and very freeing. I did not have to think much or plan. At this point in things I am needing to be creative but I just don't have much concentration. This was a great way to spend a stress free day in the studio and create something fun and new. Beryl Taylor is the author of the article and I have to apologize because I can not find which month the article was in the magazine.

Life has mellowed a bit but things are still a bit up in the air. I hope someday to be able to tell you all about what has been going on in our lives. It is a character building experience and my husband and I. We have decided we are going to live our lives and be good people and send out good thoughts.
