Another Twinkle Quilt

In my own defense I want to say that I can quit whenever I want.


I just don't want to stop making these circles. And they're starting to creep into other designs.


But, like I said, I'm not powerless.

I am a HUGE fan of circles too, and yours are some of my favorites!! Your designs are not only beautiful, but so energizing!

Ooooo!!! I like those hexagons. They look a little tricky.

Please don't ever stop making the twinkle quilts. I love them so much and think they are so darn cute.

I love the little circle quilt (and the circle creep, as well). I like how your quilting accents the energy of the circles.

Is twinkling bad for you? : ) I see no reason to stop and 1,000,000 reasons to continue!

please, don't stop! Your quilts are fabulous and I love seeing them so often. I think it's amazing how much sewing you get done - you rock!

Twinkle is great, but I'm totally digging teh deconstructed hexagons. They remind me of "Liesls Fünfecken," a German book with pentagons and lots of other shapes to fill spaces. Cool stuff!

I am new to your blogs (well, blogging in general). How did you do your circles? I'm guessing you have a trick other than hand applique. I also adore your hexagons!

Nancy said...

I can't wait to see what you do with the hexagons.

Joan Heinrich Callaway said...

Okay, now feeling a little silly. Are the circles done with dye? How are you doing that?

Isa said...

I love circles, in particular yours. I love how you used in the hexagons, you are so very creative!

Karen said...

Looking AWESOME;)

You should keep going until you're sick of them! That's how I stopped making soft toys recently. I love your twinkle quilts.

Did you know that the quilt magazine has taken down your tutorial on how to dye the circles? The pdf I have linked on my blog under the post about you is gone now. Is there anywhere else I could link it?

Janet said...

Love both the circles and the hexagons. Great color and patterns.

Rachel said...

These circles are great! The fabric is so fun!

I LOVE your circles! My quilt group has been stuck on circles for about 2 years now...but we never tire of them! You have a great blog and I loved seeing all that you create - thanks for the inspiration! xo, Nan

Love your circles, patterns & colors! So cheerful and full of joy. I know you can stop...but don't, okay? :)

Cheryl Arkison said...

I'm addicted to circles too. Very addicted.

Love the circles....the best process I've tried in getting into quilting..I can see that it might cost a lot when you"re hooked!..I've come up with one idea for the circles. Blank CD's glued together work just fine...Loctite has an adhesive "No Mess Adhesive" which has worked just fine thru about 10 bleach/dye baths. Couldn't originally find the 3/4" plexiglass fabricated...so tried the CD's. The only problem is the hole in the middle of CD but really looks OK.

Maybe you can stop any time but, please don't! They are so beautiful!

Valérie said...

Can't blame you, these are gorgeous!

Sally said...

I'm in love with circles also and your quilt is mesmerizing. How do you do them? Fuse, hand applique, cut out and insert? TIA, Sally
