    i tried something new

    I am working on tshirt quilts and I wanted to do something different for quilting. I have cross hatching alot and I am tired of it

    I decided to try circles... and I am glad that I did. I did 6", 3" and 2" circles (approximately) They are far from perfect but I am happy with how they turned out. After a good washing I think I will be really happy with it

    That looks good. It's always fun to try something new and to like the results.

    thanks everyone! I did mark the circles before I quilted. I used Crayola washable marker and drew around a bowl and 2 different sized cups no ruler - but it served my purpose

    I think you did a great job. That's a fun alternative to straight lines.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.
