    I am almost finished with my Disappearing Nine patch. This is my first pieced quilt..it is a busy pattern.
    So I am unsure of what kind of stitching pattern to use ...I am going to be hand quilting. Should it be an over all pattern, or since there are so many circles in the fabric design, should I just draw different size circles, I can use plates for the circles.
    I could buy some stencils, if necessary.
    I have it almost sewn together...just a few strips to finish.
    I have attached a photo. Thanks for your help and suggestions. Hugs, Dee

    Very pretty, Dee-the colors are striking. I think I'd just do all over circles; different sized plates would work and I think would really add to your quilt. Love it.

    The circles would make a nice finishing touch, i have been working on a "Ice Crystals" pattern doing it by hand stiching each Diamond, triangle, and square. Been on it for way to long. i"ll not do that again..

    Great idea, overlapping circles will hide any slight errors you might have--not that you would, but I would.:)

    I like the overlapping circle idea - following the same design as the black fabric with white rings.
    Great job!

    for the quilting find all the ROUND things you can..cups, bowls, etc and PLAY on some paper first...I think the rings would be really cool!
