Silver Linings Circles
59" x 58.5"
On another note, I must tell you that they wanted me to write a pattern to go with it. I have no experience writing patterns, so I wrote the pattern as I worked. Lots of notes, measurements and photos helped me put it together. Also, because STOF fabrics is in Denmark, they have many customers who use the metric system, so my pattern needed to be in English and Metric measurements. This added to my anxiety, but ultimately was not a problem, just a bit more work. They will be adding it to their website at some point if you want to download it and make this fun quilt!
My idea was to make some improvisational patchwork (like on the back of Pink and Orange), and cut it into drunkard path's blocks. I grouped the fabrics into 4 color patterns, and set to work. The first one was the creams and greens (and a little pop of aqua blue).

I used a different patchwork for each quadrant of the circle. It was easy to make these fabrics sing!
post regarding my 2nd place win at the Houston Quilt Show for Two Deer, or Too Dear!). She had sent me some sample battings to play with! I choose the Cotton (80%)/Wool (20%) blend for this project, and just LOVED it. It was so easy to work with, easy to quilt, and the quilt looks fantastic after all this quilting! It hangs so nicely!
