At the show this year there seemed to be an abundance of quilts with circular designs.  Check these out.

This one kind of looks like an eye.  I guess that is why the quilter calls it “Colorful Retina”.

I have included these two for a special reason.  Can you figure out what that reason is before scrolling down?

If you look closely at the first one, “Celtic Migration”, you will see that the pattern is made up of flying geese.  You will also notice how small those geese are.

s36

The second one, “Reflection in Front of a Wall” is made up of tiny squares.  I know I would not have the patience to do something like this.

How many of you have/had a rubik’s cube?  How many of you solved it?  Do you think this could have helped?

Each year the show hosts a special challenge sponsored by Cherrywood fabrics.  You may remember previous ones on “The Lion King” or “Wicked”.  This year the theme was “Prince”.  I will end this post with a look at some of those quilts.

  7. Did I miss your last week’s quilt post? I’ll have to go back and check. I have been reading your quilting posts for several years, and every year the quilts are just awesome! There is so much creativity in the world that it’s impossible to grasp it all. Those circular quilts really appeal to me…like mandalas. The intricacy of the quilting blows my mind. I’d never have the patience! Thanks for sharing this amazing talent once again.
