    I showed a small part of this quilt previously. I made the scrap circles (coffee filters) than appliqued them onto a plain square and then sewed the squares together. I sashed the blocks with a black and white stripe sheet. I will show you the front and the back.

    Did U use the filters as a foundation & later remove the paper before appliquing? Neat idea! Thanks for sharing & wonderful way to use up scraps.

    Very nice - the stripes are a great contrast to the circles and bright colors of the plain blocks.

    yes, I sprayed the filters with water to rip the paper off and then appliqued them..
