More Circles



Here is the latest circle game. I'm still not satisfied with the way it is arranged and will be working more on that. For starters I'll exchange the black one on the bottom right with the middle top yellow one. Or I might go from dark upper left to light lower right. It is also possible to make a few more blocks and make it much larger. The blocks are 10 inches square. Also, I'll probably make the orange border quite a bit wider. Suggestions are welcome.


These ones are faced with iron on interfacing, turned and then sewn on with a star stitch. I'm not sure if I like this, or a more invisible machine stitch or raw edge.

I like the addition of the light backgrounds. it looks like fun all around.

I think the black background one belongs in the left bottom corner. Then you have washed from light upper right to dark lower left.

I like the orange boarder you've got there. It works!
That start stitch gives a bit more character to your circles... 8-)

No suggestions, just admiring the fun. You're going to have a grand time with this one! I especiallly like the use of decorative stitching around the edges of your circles.

That Diana Hire book was one I wanted to get but never did...

I love these circle projects! They look like they go together quickly and you really get to play with color and values!

No great input here, except that I'm not a fan of the star stitching; kinda takes away from the impact of the circles.

But that's just me, yanno.

I vote for more blocks... I like the star stitching - it is unusual... Not unlike the off centered circles.

Do another yellow background to help the other one to play nicely...

What if you did different sized borders - so that one side and the bottom were wider - I just think since the circles are offset that the borders could be wonky too - by the way - i love, love, love, these blocks
