Round...

 ...and round
...and round!
I'm loving these Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons together, the colours are delicious.
Still not sure if this quilt will look any good in the end, I'm just adding each row as I go, rather than planning the entire quilt from the start so we will see. In the meantime, I'm having fun!

ms lottie said...

Mmmm, yummy. Love those Amy Butler fabrics.

Janet said...

I love it too, I think it looks fabulous colourwise. You're probably pretty good at auditioning fabrics by now not to have to think it all out at the begining and I think it's fun way to work too.

Oh it's certainly going somewhere Cathy!!! It's gorgeous and so different! Isn't it just great and aren't we lucky to have an interest that is such fun! I'm really enjoying seeing how this is going. I guess now you need to start looking out for a super giant-sized round bed!!!!

Bree said...

I'm doing a similiar quilt and I love the way each fabric appears to change as you add another beside it. I think the harmony of these quilts is in the variety of fabrics.
I do tend to try and have an element of similarity or a common colour each time I start a new row.

Jackie said...

It looks gorgeous so far, so it will be gorgeous in the end! Love it!!

Shelley said...

This quilt is going to be delicious!! I am kicking myself for not ordering up a mess of those shot cottons before the prices went up! You always do such a marvelous job of color placement :)

alobsiger said...

Oh, I love how it's coming together, Cathy! I have two rounds' worth cut out because of your inspiration. I dragged them on a recent trip but they didn't get sewn up. I WILL, I WILL, I WILL because I love both of yours. :-) Thanks for the inspiration!

Stephanie said...

Amazingly gorgeous! I love it and hope you share more rounds with us.

Crispy said...

Oooo, I love where you are going with this quilt!! It's so bright and cheerful. Are you going to make it square eventually or keep it round?

Oops-Lah said...

It's gorgeous! I'm wondering how big your squares and diamonds are? I really want to make one like that (one day).

GingerCat said...

It's a lovely start and knowing you it will go someplace wonderful! But, it is fun to play - unplanned. I think it's letting your creativity flow...
