    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..

    thanks everyone for looking and commenting. I wish I could say the coffee filters was an original idea but not.....got the idea from where?
    why, Quilting Board of course :!: :!:
    I like making things a little off-beat, thus the black and white stripes.

    Your circles look great. Who knew--a coffee filter.

    I love your scrappy circle quilt with the stunning black and white strips sheet! Using the coffee filters would make the perfect circles! In art, people are drawn to circles...
