A Quick Quickie

Feeling slightly pooped on this, a brilliant (I think) quilt design popped into my head.
I loved this brilliant little trickie and am putting it to use.
So I cut out some circles (note never-before-used 8 year-old circle cutter),
picked out some fabric,
got meself some foil
and voila! A quilt in the making!
This is not the decided upon layout, just a hint of what's to come. You know what else is to come? A lot of hand sewing. Yeeps!
Oh, and one last thing:
Has your heart not burst? Oh...you are a cold cold person.


  1. Meow - look at that kitty belly & she is such a big helper! I can't wait to see where you are going with those circles... Have you see the current American Patchwork & Quilting magazine? - April 2007, check out page 30 - this method would be great for that - do you think they make foil that big?

    I love that idea, all the circles on white look great. I am about to embark on something a bit spotty myself. Cute kitty, very cute!

  3. Wow! That looks like a lot of work and that looks like one sweet kitty :)

    oooh, that looks fun! I can't wait to see what you are going to do!

  5. Hmmmm, it looks like you have stolen my giant fat white cat! (Ours is called Whinger.)

  6. How was the foil used? I'm new to quilting so this might be a silly question. Also, I see you used your circle cutter to cut patterns. Could the circle cutter not be used directly on the fabric to make each circle at the size you wanted?
