My place to be creative

Creative Week 44


I wish it would snow!

Here in the UK we have not yet had a decent frost which is unusual for this time of year.  Yes, we have had a cold snap but nothing that has killed off any of the plants in the gardens, even the birds are foraging for themselves rather than eating the offerings laid out for them by us and our neighbours – so it must be mild.

This weeks quilt idea:- Hidden Circles (not the most inspired title)

Circles 1

The quilt measures approximately 51 1/2″ square.

Here are is the usual info required to make this quilt should you wish to.

The layout once again is straight with 5 blocks across by 6 down.

In the following quilt I have removed some of the lines from the blocks to make construction easier.

  1. I keep losing the block when it is set on point!

    Very, very interesting results from a very simple block! Love it, particularly in multi colours.

  2. Thank you. I think I may try it with each ‘circle’ in a different colour and each diamond but keep the black.
