This one was lots of fun to make! The upper circle has 36 tucks sewn into it; each tuck was then twisted in opposite directions several times to get the effect seen here. The lower circle has only 18 tucks; these were brought together and tacked. Finally, the tucked points (Babies in Baskets) were added around the outside. After machine quilting the "rays" emanating from the circles, I added the little four-petaled "flowers" (I believe they're called Folded Fabrications) with a button in the center of each. The quilt measures 32" x 23" and was machine pieced and machine quilted, with some of the twiddling and fiddling done by hand.
This is a detail of parts of the circles:
Eight Petals and a Pot
This is the third of the quilts I started at Quilt Camp in 2007. There are Baltimore Rosebuds tucked into the flower petals for interest, and the leaves are dimensional, satin stitched into place. As with the two quilts above, this quilt was machine pieced and machine quilted, with some manipulating done by hand.
Here is a detail showing some of the quilting and a bit of the fabric manipulation in the pot:
This one measures 18 1/2" x 28 1/2", and I finished it in August, 2007.
