    Imperfect Circles

    This one took me almost a year to do. It's now hanging above our King size bed to give you an idea of size. It took me 8 spools of thread and hundreds of hours (literally? I don't know, but it felt like it!). I did all of the quilting on my Bernina 830E and I used Ikea sheets for the front and back. Quilt police, put your badges away;> There is a quilt in the Modern Quilt book by Weeks Ringle that just grabbed me and I wanted it, so here it is.

    How cool! I'm surprised it only took 8 spools of thread!

    I like it. You did great on the quilting and I can see why it took forever to finish.

    Omigosh, I thought that was the print on the fabric. I can't believe all of the stippling. Wow! Very impressive.

    Great quilt. I see why it took so much time and thread. Very unique. Love the color too.

    Thanks:> My eyes got rather googly at points and I started seeing stippling behind my closed eyelids. Very weird! I think I am good friends with small stippling now.

    It was a white piece of fabric or a wholecloth. Yes, the color is only from the quilting.
