Bloggers Quilt Festival and the Circle Quilt :)
When I started sewing last December some handmade Christmas ornaments for me and some friends, I would never have thought that I would decide to sew a quilt. When I saw the Circle quilt from Bijou Lovely, I thought "Gosh!!! I have to try this!!! It's gorgeous!!!". It changed my whole perspective:)
I had some unused new sheets (white for the front and grey for the back) that were calling me from my closet "please pick me!! pick me!!!", and in addition I ordered 10 different prints for the circles.
The Just Dreamy Collection and the Rainy Days Collection both by Riley Blake.
For the binding I used a satin grosgrain ribbon, and machine stitched it in place. Later on, thanks to all those lovely ladies who commented on my quilt, I found out that satin binding is much harder to handle than a cotton one. If only I knew earlier!
So after app 4 weeks of sewing (started on Feb. 23 and finished on March 18), reading and again the tutorial and watching this video on how to bind your quilt I managed to complete it:) I was delighted with joy!!!
Finished size : 60'' x 45''
It has been so warm on those cold winter days, when staying in and watching movies:) Now it rests happily on my couch, and it's also Dido's (my cat) favorite spot!!
