Quilts Without Corners...

I'm teaching a class on these round quilts by Cheryl Phillips.  These are the simplest designs in the books and are the shop samples.  As you can no doubt guess, the top one in batiks is mine and the calico is Sandy's.  Nice to see how the same pattern turns out in different fabrics. These still need the centers "installed" and quilted up.  The technique is super easy and very fast.  Just a few hours and you have a quilt.  I am planning on making a baby quilt from another of her patterns and I'm also playing around with a tree skirt.  The round quilt would look sharp as a medallion on a bigger quilt, also.  Lots of possibilities.
 

Sleepy, today, and movin' slow.  It doesn't help that it's dark and pouring rain.  "How do you know it's raining cats and dogs?  When you step in a poodle!"  Juvenile humor is always better in the morning.  I see chicken and dumplings in my future so I need to get it in the pot!  Have a great day!

The round quilts are cool! Wish I was there to take your class.

I am sleepy today too - it is overcast and rainy here too.

Love you and miss you!

These remind me of summer pinwheels, which remind me of fun.

I loved those quilts long before I sent you the book and template. How would you get a round quilt to stay on the wall and hang correctly? That always puzzled me.

This is so cool. I hope you can teach me when we are up for the summer (june/july). I keep staring at it, trying to figure it out, but it is no use. I am stumped. Both color palates are pretty. I can't decide which one I like better.

Both pieces are pretty but I think I like the batik one best. And I am not a batik person. I have never made one of these and wonder how you can hang them. I made a quilt once that was hexagon shaped and it never hung well.
