Going in Circles

I had considered several straight-line designs to quilt String Theory.  In the end I went with circles.  I've seen this pattern on several quilts; it makes me think of raindrops in puddles.  I love it.

It's my first time quilting circles.  It was a lot of fun.  I also tried a variegated thread and like the results (the camera doesn't pick it up).  The quilting shows up best on the back.

Next is the binding.  I have a few ideas - I am just double checking my yardage.  Then I need to design a label and it's done!

I found a home for the quilt.  I will be donating it to the Rehoboth contra dance for their No Snow Ball fund raiser in August.  Many people loved it as a wall hanging; now they have a chance to hang it on their wall. 


  1. I sure like your quilting on this quilt. And I've learned more about guineas than I ever knew!

  2. What a beautiful quilt and the quilting done in circles looks perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love your circle quilting. It's a perfect complement to the blocks. I like using variegated thread too.
