Full Circle Quilting

I recently found this great tutorial from Anna Maria Horner's blog on sewing the perfect circles into quilts... but it wasn't for me, so I found this one instead.

It works like a charm, and so I used a bunch of Amy Butler fabric scraps I had left over from this project with some ideas on quilting with embroidery floss from Ms. Horner's blog.

So far, I'm loving the effect, and I'd like to try the same butcher-paper technique for some other cool shapes. I'm thinking fish, or birds.

Cancer, it's ON.


I've never liked you. I'm tired of you attacking good, wholesome people with families and friends. People who raise children, go to work, laugh and love and cry. You really suck, you know? We're taking you on, and we're not going to be nice. Get ready, 'cause we're kicking your ass. It's ON.
