    Eye Candy For The Day


    Lovely quilters, it's me again with a beautiful, no CUTE quilt that I saw. I just had to share it with you. Knowing me I'll be doing that a lot so please bare with me; nobody here to share these lovelies with.

    I am noticing that I enjoy the look of off white, cream, the color of unbleached muslin when it comes to quilting (especially the back). I just LIKE this quilt. It is darn cute.

    Is it safe to say it is appliqued? You say what?

    I would say it is appliqued and then rick rack sewn around the edges. I would have to do it 2 steps. VERY cute!! Wishing I had as many dots as ginghams.....I would so do this! I have a friend that would adore this quilt !!!

                  Even if we find the pattern we might not be able to read it...looks like it might be French. So I guess if I can't find it then I'll just wing it.

                        Although, I am not a very modern or contemporary person, I do find this quilt to be very cute. I would also say that it's appliqued.

                          It is in the Quiltmania Summer 2012 edition. The magazine is French and there was an English version...but no one seems to have it. So I think I will cut some squares / rectangles of light colored cloth and fit them together and then make circles to fit the squares /rectangles, applique them and pretty them up and just see what I come up with.

                            If you want to try a simpler version of a quilt with circles - here is a tutorial that I have bookmarked as I really like this and plan to give it a try this year:

                            Comfort and Joy Circle Quilt Tutorial | blooming poppies

                            She doesn't cut squares but just puts the circles where she wants on the quilt. I also think how she makes the circles is interesting as they "poof" a little bit as they are not directly adhered to the quilt back.
