Default Prayers and Squares quilts

The first two quilts are variations of "Going Around in Circles." The colors aren't as true as I'd like, but you get the idea. The second is a little more colorful than it appears here. The third is a rag quilt made from recycled jeans, flannel on the back of the plaid squares, plaid on the back of the denim squares. The fourth one is a Minecraft quilt to be given to a home for abused kids. Again, the color isn't very true. It is actually greener than it appears here. And no, I haven't been "busy!" That's the reason I had time to make so many quilts!

Really, really like the first two -- Going in Circles. Who makes the pattern? I'd love to try to find it. Thank you!

I'm not sure who makes the pattern. I saw it in the quilt shop and just adapted it. It has one background fabric of a stripe that isn't well defined, cut into strips, then squares, and pieced in alternate directions. Then I just traced various bowls, etc. onto the paper that comes with double-sided fusible pellon. I cut the circles and played with the arrangement. Here's another one I did . http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t239074.html

THANKS for an idea. I have the RK fabric you used in the first quilt and I am going to adapt the layout for a Bible bag. Now where did I put that fabric?? That was a cute idea to incorporate the pick of the jean in the rag quilt. You are very creative!
