Within the circle

I know that for the whole year we have to make 4 quilts and yes, I have completed my 3rd one :-). No doubt I will end up with a lot more than 4 by the end of the year, but I am having fun with this theme.

For this quilt I started with a piece of black fabric which I had discharged with bleach. Most of the blacks discharged to a light brown/yellow color, but this one discharged to white. I quilted it with a red thread and added circles on it. The circles are made from commercial felt. After I stitched them to the background I added blanket stitch with a red thread of pearl cotton. Title is 'Within the Circle'.

  1. You're lucky the black fabric turned into white. Like the quilting too.
