My daughter has this thing about circles. She loves to draw them, and then scribble them out (or fill them in, I'm not quite sure which) if they aren't to her satisfaction. In addition, any letter in her coloring books that have an enclosed space (a,b,d,e,g...you get the idea) get filled in. Raindrops - filled in. Eyes, noses, fingernails - filled in. We're not quite sure what it means, but it's pretty interesting to watch her ever so carefully color in these spaces.
So on Thursday, as I was going through my blog roll, I happened upon this post from one of my new favorite sewing/quilting blogs. A circle quilt. For some reason, I am obsessed with this quilt. I can't tell you how many times I went back to this page over the weekend to study the pictures. Amanda's version is based on this tutorial (from another great blog), and I like her version better. To me, the blank squares give your eye a resting place. I went through my stash and found this fat quarter bundle just begging to be cut into circles:
I've also got fabric for two more quilts picked out, for a set of twin girls. Their mom does a lot of pink/purple with them, so I thought they were perfect. I'm not sure yet if I'll do circle quilts with them or do them the same as my Pooh quilt, but I think I'll back the purple one with pink and the pink one with purple.
