More Circles That Sizzle!

A few weeks ago I had another class making the Sizzling Circles quilt.  I’ve been so busy lately that I totally forgot about those pictures!  I must admit, I can’t remember the names of all the gals in the class.  So I’ll just give them all new names….  and hope they don’t mind too much if they are reading my blog.  I knew that all of you would really want to see the pictures.  And the ladies aren’t in the pictures anyway – just the circles.  So away we go with the pics.

Here are “Patsy’s” Pink circles.  But if we look at the other side of the circles, maybe her name is “Greta”.  The blocks are very cute no matter what her name is. 

This is “Sammie” because her circles are very scrappy.  OK.  I didn’t say the names were going to be good.  Work with me here, people!

“Yolanda” carefully sews on the drawn line on her yellow circles.  Sorry about that color there.  Kind of hard to read, isn’t it?  But you get the idea.

Aren’t these nice?

“Betsy” did these cool black and white circles.  And I would have made the word white……. well, white.  But then you wouldn’t have been able to read it at all, now would you?

This quilt is going to be very classy, don’t you think?  “Betsy” did a good job with pretty black and white circles.

And these are “Gracie’s”….well…. Aunt Grace circles.  I get the prize for original names today.  Hey, be nice!  It’s been a long, busy week.  (For you non-quilters out there:  Aunt Grace is a fabric line of 1930’s reproduction prints.  Like the fabrics above that “Gracie” used.)

And finally “Bronwyn’s” brown circles.  And don’t give me any grief……

Here are “Sammie’s” scrappy circles all sewn together.  Aren’t the colors fabulous?  This quilt is going to be a show-stopper for sure.

And “Sammie” was also wearing this:

What a fabulous necklace!  There was a story involved, but I’m sorry.  I’ve slept too many nights since I took this picture to remember it.  Perhaps “Sammie” or her friend, “Betsy” can enlighten us with a comment?  Because I would love to hear the story again!  And the necklace was so cool that I just had to show it to you.  Story or no story.

And now goodbye forever.  After this crazy blog, I’ll be lucky if any of you ever return to read it again.  Please come back.  I’d really miss you if you left forever.  I promise to remember your name next time.

    Hey Babs, that was a really fun class, and I think my favorite circles turned out to be Sammie’s! By the way, Sammie had just returned from Russia with that beautiful necklace!

  8. Carolyn says:

    My cat is Sammie so the first time I quickly read this I thought you had named us all for our pets. Which would be fine because Sammie will someday rule the world. Apparently with Boo. The necklace (we were told) is a traditional Russian craft of hand embroidery on leather.
