The last challenge for the modern quilt guild from Germany was circles. You can check them out here: I have always wanted to make a circle quilt, and so I got started right away before summer. I had two small layer cakes in black/white that I wanted to use, and choose a green as my circle color. I had so much fun making different circles in different methods, hand appliqued, machine appliqued or both. I made the circle in different sizes and even cut some of them in half or quarters.
This is the finished quilt.
I wanted to add some yo-yo's and buttons.
I quilted the circles all different, some even by hand.
The background is quilted in a soft meander, since I did not want to get the meander on the circles.
This was fun, and I now have to think about the next challenge from the Modern Quilt Guild Stuttgart.
I had the pleasure to host my family's yearly get together at my house in Washington State. All my family lives in Germany, besides my brother who lives in Switzerland.
Only a three sisters came with their spouses, and we had a great day in Seattle at the Chihuly Garden and Glass. If you are ever in Seattle, you may want to go and see this garden, I can only recommend it.

Looks like a banana tree. All made out of glass.
I normally don't post pictures with people in it for my blog, but I love this one with the reflection of myself and two of my older sisters in it, and the Space Needle.
The greens and blues are awesome.
I am not sure how I managed to take a picture without people in it. But I did.
