    Circle of Illusions...aka Circle of Migraines

    I made this quilt six years ago as a challenge/dare from a Quilt Instructor giving a class in my QS. She said I would never do it, let alone finish it. I called this quilt everything from Circle of Nightmares to Circle of Migraines with a few other names for variety(LOL)
    It took six months to make and I had it quilted by a good friend. I added the hummingbirds and morning glories appliques, going from larger ones to smaller ones, trying to get a whirlpool effect. I think I needed to add more to get the effect I wanted, but, oh well! Anyway, not only did I meet her challenge, I made this quilt a whopping 120" square. I am really quite proud of this quilt. Not just because of the labour intense work, but because I finished it!!!

    I am so impressed! That is an excellent job. Cannot imagine a quilt instructor telling you you would not finish it though. She should have been more encouraging. So glad you finished it, just to prove her wrong, if nothing else! It's a beauty!

    I would love to make a Vortex quilt, you did a great job! I've only been able to find one pattern for it. If I were smarter I could figure it out myself, but I'm just to lazy. Wonderful quilt!

    What a fantastic quilt even though looking at it makes me dizzy.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Maybe her motive behind telling you that was to spur you on to prove her wrong.......looks like it worked. Fabulous quilt!!

    That is stunning. You are certainly justified in feeling proud of your accomplishment. I hope you have entered it in a quilt show.

    You have every reason to be proud. That is a beautiful, labor intensive quilt! I would have a celebration, and call in all the family and neighbors, if I finished that quilt! Nice job.

    you did a fantastic job with the quilt!!!! i really would not be able to have that, though, as it is hard on my eyes - vision issues.
