I started working on a second fractured circle quilt, this one in brighter colors. I got sidetracked (in a good way) by a visit with a friend to the Tacoma Art Museum, where I saw this striking piece of Chihuly glass:
Back home, I started sewing the arcs onto the blue background and squares of off-white batting.
Then I got distracted (in a good way again) by having the Feet and Forks over for a beach walk and this apple Bavarian torte, which sort of looks like a fractured circle.
I did some more machine sewing, but the view was quite distracting. I didn't want to be inside on such a nice day, especially since the rain is coming back next week.
So I took my squares outside and slowly pulled all the thread tails to the back. In my first fractured circle quilt I stitched in gold and left the thread tails dangling, but this time I'm going for a crisper look.

Have a colorful day
