Crop Circle Quilt - Work in Progress


With Easter and the school holidays, I have taken some time out to do some quilting for myself.  I have had this Crop Circle Quilt designing itself in my head for quite some time and these circles are the result.  The quilt is going to be a wallhanging and I have used white Kona Cotton quilted with Aurifil threads.

Here are some of my circles.





I am having a wonderful time quilting these, although, pebbling is not my favourite pastime.  Now, to fill that white space - feathers perhaps?

  4. Just wonderful! I had seen a similar quilt idea about two years ago at a machine quilting show. Except she had done the quilting on a solid black and used a little heavier weight thread. The results in the end were gorgeous, as I am sure this will be too!

  7. I have only tried pebbles on a practice quilt. I will have to make the jump to doing on a real quilt... yours look really nice.

  8. WOW - this is beautiful! I would maybe do a grid in the white space - won't feathering detract from the awesome pebbling you've done? I love, love, love this!
