    Before I even finished reading your post I had to admire all the photos and thought the quilting between the circles looked like mums. Then I went back to read the description and sure enough, they were. I am also a big fan of Asian fabrics. This quilt is Absolutely Lovely!

    Spectacular quilt! What an awesome way to showcase the gorgeous fabrics. I like the "shading" of the background fabrics. I will remember that trick!

    Wow that is really beautiful. The quilting is wonderful too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    No definitely easier on my own! I don't stess over it as much as a client quilt and if I flub or make a small mistake or slip out of the ditch I usually mutter, Good enough, won't show in the long run and continue. On a client quilt I would rip and redo. I suppose if I was doing a show quilt I would be more fussy but even then... I kinda doubt it. I only enter shows for the fun of it, not to win and some of the LA quilted quilts that are in major shows well I couldn't even compare to those.

    This quilt I did do some practice of the motif before starting. My original intent was to duplicate the Sashiko design of pumpkin seeds in the background which is the 4 pointy end ovals that meet in the center forming a 4 petal flower but when looked at overall also form interlocked circles. It is basically done by quilting continuous curves in a crosshatch grid. Also known as Dianeshiko after Diane Gaudynski, who uses it a lot for background fill. It looks fabulous when done well but that would have entailed marking a 1/2" checkerboard grid on point over the entire center portion of the quilt behind the applique. I was willing to do it but when I practiced it my continuous curves left much to be desired (need to practice those more!) and it was very time consuming. I intend to gift this to my mom for Christmas so wanted to finish it before then! LOL. Then I came up with this flower design, it was fast, easy and fun to quilt and it added great texture. Best of all no marking! So the flower won out in my design process.

    A beautiful quilt and a great way to use the prints. The quilting adds to it very well.

    I love how the circles showcase the fabrics! The quilting is perfect for this quilt too. Very nice job.
