Less square, more long

I'm still adding to my circles quilt.  I thought I was going to do the medallion thing, but after I added a row to the bottom and laid out the next column on the left hand side I wasn't so sure...


In the end I added an extra row to the bottom and am now getting ready to add one at the top.  I like this shape better.  As I add each row I am slowing moving the emphasis from mostly denim towards the blue 9 patches and the shirt fabrics.  


I'm probably still a little way off the sort of size I was aiming at, so am wondering about a border of some sort, though at the moment I don't have something specific in mind.  I'm hoping that if I have a play I might feel inspired.  Having said that, looking at the photo now I might also stop here.

  1. It's been fun watching this evolve. You might need a border to stabilize things since you are using a variety of fabric weights. Or you can just be extra careful when finishing ....

  2. I think this looks great! With the circles more in the center, I feel like it already has some borders, but it will be fun to see if you decide to add more. :)

  3. I much prefer the rectangular to the square shape -- your colors are marvelous!

  4. Clearly you are having fun intuitively piecing, combining and reassessing.

  5. This is so cool! I really love variety, that it's not just those beautiful circles. :)

  6. Contrast breaks up monotony and less busy areas give rest to the eyes.
    Good planning.

  7. It looks great with the variety of other blocks you have added to the quilt. I like those little x-s here and there.

  9. I like the rectangular shape with the borders. I would add another row at the top then add a border all the way around just to keep those seams in tact, especially if you're planing to hand-quilt it. Otherwise, it really is perfect just as it is. I've been wondering if those circles are part of the Quilty 365 crowd. The entire composition looks fabulous! What a joy to see!

  10. This mix of shapes and shades of blue is really wonderful Kaja! It makes me think of dew drops with sunlight sparkling through them.

  12. LOL You know this is a little bit like watching cells multiplying,
    in this instance not duplicating themselves but creatively altering and diversifying!
    It gets better and better!

  13. This is gorgeous Kaja! I don't think it needs borders at all, but you do what you think works best! Gorgeous! I don't know if you are still having issues with getting your comment notifications, I had the same problem. I did a post on how I fixed it. Maybe it will help you!

  15. I've been comparing your photos to see the improvements of each. I thought it was fine originally but now it's better every time. I like the slight de-emphasis of the circles in your last picture.
