Floating Circles

At last, the floating circles quilt is finished! This is a bigger quilt than I usually make, so it definitely took a bit longer.  I wanted to make it a special one since it is for my sister Carolyn.

She likes blue, and there is a lot of blue in here.  I hope it will be enough blue to make her happy.

I had fun doodling with my longarm.

Each circle seemed to want something a little different.

You can see I did a little scribbling along the contours of these flowers.

I think all of the fabrics in here are pretty and they all play well together.

Carolyn is one of the sweetest people I know.  She's always helping someone else.  So I wanted to make something extra special for her.

Hope your weekend is off to a good start!

Hugs and kisses,
