Le Challenge - Geometrics

There is a new monthly challenge set up at Le-Challenge and today is the first link-up party.  This month's theme is "Geometrics".  When I saw the theme, I knew that I wanted to work with circles and that this was a great time to try out a block on my to-do list - wonky circles.


 
I used the wonky circles tutorial at How About Pink Please.  I hand quilted this using red thread in concentric circles about 1/2 inch apart.  I didn't mark this quilt, just quilted kinda free form.
 
It finished at 27 inches square and I am still thinking of a name.  My mother had the idea to use no visible binding and she finished the quilt with a facing binding method which I think was a good idea.  The binding is on the back side of the quilt and there are no visible binding stitches on the front side.
 
Here is a close up of the corner.

I can't wait to see the theme for next month.

  16. Mina is it okay if I use your photo of your improv circle quilt on my blog if I give you and the tutorial credit. Our guild is wanting to do some improv work and your quilt is so bright and cheery.
