    I'll get around to posting a couple of the other quilts I've made later, but as I'm going to give this one to it's intended home today, I figured I better take a picture now!

    This is my first applique project (all the circles) and my first not-scrappy-pick-where-things-go-to-get-ideal-balance quilt.

    I loved making it, and fell so in love with the pattern, that I'll be making my own (already have the fabrics, but not allowing myself to start until my son's applique quilt is done).

    Let me know what you think!

    It's pretty cool! I love how your eye goes everywhere; there's a lot of movement. I can see why you want to make one for yourself now!

    I think you did a great job, the circles look great and that's hard to accomplish most of the time. Love the colors, it's fun and the circles are really cool. What did you name it?

    Thanks everyone. Since doing this quilt I've become so addicted to hand applique!

    The pattern is Broken Garden Path, and I made it for my friend Jennifer - I think of it as Jennifer's Garden.
