IMG_circles0001I’ve always suffered at the hands of math.  I tried, I really did.  True confession; poor Mrs. Duffus had to have me twice in geometry because I didn’t pass it the first time.  But these circles are totally different for me.  They’re addicting is what they are.  The picture above is only the beginning because I’m bound and determined to made a quilt for my king size bed.  But the thought of piecing a quilt that large has been too daunting to me.  I’ll never finish it, I’d tell myself.  Then, the incomparable amandajean gave me a great idea somewhat based on this quilt. Isn’t that a great quilt? It’s so simple yet striking and bold. So I thought, “What if I started with an already sandwiched quilt? Wouldn’t that make the process go quickly?”

So, what I’m thinking is involving 108″ muslin and these circles. Stay tuned for more as this evolves.

In other developments, and aside from the circles quilt, I have no less than 5 quilts going. It’s a bit hectic, but it helps with keeping my brain somewhat fresh and entertained. The other geometry I’m working on…

I’ve been so inspired lately by all the cool kids making some half square triangle quilts.  This is my favorite, by red pepper quilts.   Also, the girls are getting into my enthusiasm for the red, pink and aqua combination that seems to be everywhere right now.  So, a quilt was in order to go with this dresser that now lives in their room.  It’s going to be off the hook. 

So, I think all I need is about 5 days to myself and I could finish all these projects.  Yeah…like that’s going to happen.

    I’m loving the circles, and the triangle quilt you are working on…especially the red letter day fabric (lizzy’s my daughter!). Can’t wait to follow the progress on your king size quilt.

    The circles look great! I am excited to see how it turns out. The aqua, red and pink triangles look so cheery together. Your fabrics work so well together. =]
