Circle quilt revealed

So, when I first started blogging in January I said that this would be done later in the month and you all could see. However, I missed the baby shower and had to wait until the mommy to be could see it. So with out any further delay... (insert drum roll)

Here is the circle quilt!

I love the bright blue background. It is Kona cotton lagoon. It is so bright and boy! All those circles are raw edge applique and I made many different sizes.

See this little sun. He is the where all the colors came from in this quilt. That was my jumping off fabric.

I have had it in my stash since I first started quilting over ten years ago. He may be in a little girls quilt too. I just have to track down that picture :)

And here is the back. Aren't those just perfect. It is a Riley Blake print. I really like Riley Blake fabrics :)

Oh yeah and I did machine binding on this one too. I am not too happy with it. I like binding by hand better.

  1. I love Riley Blake fabrics too, they are so happy. Super cute quilt!

  2. So cute! I love that little sun, and all your colors are just perfect!

  3. That's a very cheerful quilt! Good for you. The baby and momma will love it, for sure.
    About your machine sewn binding: You sewed the binding on the front and then the back, right? Try doing it the opposite way. That way the last sewing operation is done on the front of the quilt. The show-quality is retained on the front. The back will get better with practice. That's what's happening to me.

  4. I LOVE it! Looks great! Sew On!

  5. Whoop-Whoop! I LOVE this quilt. It is so fun. I'm sure the little boy will love it as he gets older.

  6. Very cute quilt!!! I love those cute and cheerful little circles! And thanks for linking up! Whoop whoop!!

  7. Isn't that so cool that you can take something small in a pattern and make it HUGE!!! Love quilting:) LOVE your top!!

  8. Wow! That is an eye-popping quilt!

    I like finishing binding by hand better, too:)

  9. The quilt is adorable, and I am swooning over that pattern on the back. Love it! Thanks for linking it up!

  10. Beautiful colors! Riley Blake has fun designs.

  11. So cool! Was it difficult doing the circles? I really like your quilt a lot!

  12. So bright and happy, great job! I'm on the fence with machine binding too. Although I do tend to do it for quilts that will get heavy use. I feel like it would hold up better.

  13. Love the bright colors! Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday!
