This Scrappy Circles Quilt has been a long time in the making! Based on my blog, I made this quilt top back in December of 2014. I finally felt confident enough to quilt this big ‘ole thing.

Each scrappy circle block is cut using templates. The blocks measure 18″ square. HUGE. In fact, some of the background pieces were so large that I have bonus seams in them so they’d fit the template without me purchasing any fabrics. I love a good scrap quilt made entirely from fabric stash.

I departed from my comfort zone a tad and quilted the whole thing in Orange Creamsicle Maxilock Variegated thread. I enjoy variegated thread, but I don’t generally like it when it goes from white to a much darker shade. This one turned out ok. Of course, all the quilting hiccups happened when I was in the darkest thread.

It was a bit windy when we were able to snap photos of the quilt. #keepingitreal

And of course, the sweet dog wanted to help, too.

I did manage to get a few shots of the actual quilting. Each scrappy ring had a design:

  • Center – Long Wishbones
  • Middle Rings – Tight Wishbones
  • Outer Ring – Straight-ish Lines
  • Light Background – Diagonal Spineless Feathers

The feather quilting design is more like the Everything Bagel of quilted feathers. I have hooked feathers, curls, real feathers, cheat-y type feathers, and anything else I could think of at that time.

The back is a beautiful 108″ wide piece from Joann’s. I pre-washed it to make sure it wouldn’t bleed; washing with a color-catcher. Surprise, the color-catcher was perfectly white at the end of the load. Fantastic! I’ll be buying this one again.

All in all, I’m loving the Scrappy Circles Quilt. It measures 72″ x 90″.

That’s a wrap. Thank you, my super-tall, quilt-holding assistant!
