Circle quilt done

"Just For Fun," 40"x40", by Sherrie Spangler
I finally finished my fractured circle quilt, only three years or so after I started it! I called it "Just For Fun" because that's why I made it.

I finished it by sewing each square to the green backing with invisible thread and then tacked a button in the middle of each circle. Done!

The quarter circles and big hand embroidery stitches were inspired by Jane LaFazio's recycled circles series. Here's a link to one of them done in mixed media:

In other sewing news this week, I started teaching another wonky log cabin class today to two delightful ladies who got wonky right away!

Have a colorful day

Love your circle quilt! It came out just right! I need to dig out my instructions and do one... I have soooo much fabric that needs to be put to use! And your class sounds like fun... wish I were closer, I would have signed up!

Thumbs up - fun indeed! All the unfinished edges really work.
