    I have recently started making round quilts and wondered whether there is anyone else out there doing the same - apart from RaNae Merrill and Paula Nadelstern of course.
    Just ordinary round quilts - for my rather scratched glass table.

    What do you do with them other than put them on a table?

    Those are beautiful! Is it your own pattern? Now I want to go buy a round table. They would also look nice on the back of a couch or as a center medallion in a square quilt. Good job!

    My sister has made a couple and uses them as table toppers. You don't need a round table, they look nice on square ones too.

    Yours are beautiful. Love the colours in the second one.

    I think the pattern would make a lovely Christmas topper or tree skirt. What is the name of the pattern?

    Those are gorgeous! I have not made a round one, but you have inspired me to give one a try. Thanks for sharing.

    Those are pretty. There is a round baby quilt pattern on www.modabakeshop.com that would make a really cute playmat for a little one. I have never made a round quilt, but I think they are so pretty!

    They are both beautiful and round quilts have been in my mind lately - butterflywing posted photos of a quilt show which included a round wall hanging with squares in the upper corners so it could be hung and I recently saved a pattern for an NYB block with Flying Geese in a cirle that would look great round too. I'm currently woring on an art quilt which, though rectangular, features a spiral so I guess I'm in a circular kind of mood lately! Thanks for the extra inspiration.

    So pretty! I am going to do the butterfly one out of "Quilts Without Corners" and I like the round one from the same book for a Christmas tree skirt. Some people start with the circle as a center medallion and build out for a quilt. As far as I'm concerned, it is a beautiful accent for your table, why does it need any other purpose?
