Circles of the East/ Kumiko Sudo
Time to reveal my next project... I finally decided on “Peony” on page 26.
There are so many beautiful designs… that to make my decision, I had someone draw a slip of paper out of a bowl, so I could finally get started.
Making the Pick Easy
All the pieces were cut from the different fabrics and fused onto the background block.
Ready for Stitching the Edges
Each piece was stitched with a matching thread using a zigzag stitch. It isn’t too difficult to change these threads when you use the same colour in the bobbin.
All the pieces have been stitched and the layers sewn together. I stitched through all the layers using an echo stitch around the design.
All the patterns in this book are small like this one and very quick to stitch up. Another option would be to make a variety of these crests and then add sashing and borders to make a larger quilt.
Since I borrowed this book from a public library, I was happy to get one done before the book was ready to be returned. There are many more great projects that deserve another look.
My Finished Project
Finished size: 14” x 14”
As this is a long weekend, [Thanksgiving] we enjoyed a turkey dinner with family and I got some homework finished before getting down to writing up this entry.
Enjoy your week… and remember to take time for yourself to enjoy a hobby.
