Circles, Circles, Circles
I recently read an article in a quilting magazine that said circles are popular! With that, I decided to have a go at circle making to see what the appeal was. I have lots of fabric scraps left over from various art projects (Chieko Mamba) which I used for this project. On the surface this type of work seems too simple to be very interesting, but I was a surprised to learn there is more to putting the fabrics together in a pleasing way than I thought.
First I made a 7″ x 7″ square and then applied the circle design. I cut a 9″ x 9″ square of contrasting fabric as a back which would leave 1″ on all sides to fold up for a binding. I sandwiched a piece of batting in between the front and back and stitched into place. Below are the results… nice, but nothing to get too excited about. I knew what I had to do… make an appointment with Dr. PM.
Here is what the original looks like after going bananas with the PicMaster... who just happens to be my new BFF!
It could be an Italian mosaic or French Country curtains or whatever…

Actually, this does get me excited; I am so intrigued by the endless possibilities of photo-editing… it’s just amazing what can be done with an original image to make it more interesting or just different for the sake of being different. I’ve added a gallery of miniatures at RemnantWorks where customers can choose a design and then have it printed in any color that suits their decor. What a great option to provide!
