Birthday and quilt gift

A while back I mentioned that I had a quilt that I would show after it had been gifted. Well, now it has been given to DGD who turned 9. She seems pretty pleased, judging from her expression in the first picture. Her bedroom is done in red, black and white, so I knew I wanted to use those colors, and I didn't want to do anything real traditional. I thought circles would be perfect, and I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

The blocks with the random circles I designed myself, but the other blocks were from a pattern from the June issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.

Unfortunately, before the following picture no one told me I was having a very bad hair day.

I machine quilted the quilt with what I call scrolls.  It seems to have become quite a favorite way of mine to do the machine quilting.


  1. Love the quilt. The random circle blocks are awesome. I have 2 quilts to get done before Christmas - do you think I have a chance?

  2. LOVE IT!!! Cool fabrics and the design is fantastic. Oh and BTW...if that's a "bad hair day" for you.....I wonder what you'd call my hair day . LOL

  3. It's beautiful! I love circle quilts and even bought the circle die for my GO but haven't gotten around to making anything with it yet.

  4. What a cool quilt...I just love the pattern. Wow!

    BTW, that is nowhere near bad hair, trust me!

  5. Great pattern ...... great quilt! Love all those circles.

  6. Thank you so much for your nice comments and your quilt wonderful this colours beautiful.
