If you're not familiar with Generation Q, it's a quilt magazine that caters to the modern quilter. They always have fun and interesting articles about modern quilting and quiltmakers. Plus patterns, reviews and lots of inspiration! Check it out if you haven't seen it before!
Circles: I love this shape - although you can piece a circle, appliqueing one is so much easier for me! Sometimes I want them perfectly round and sometimes I want them not so perfect. This is a perfectly round quilt. To get them perfect, I used a compass to draw the circle on the freezer paper and cut them out. If I wanted them imperfect, i would have drawn the circles freehand.
Gradations: Need I say more!?
Chartreuse: I love this color of green. Martha Stewart introduced me to chartreuse years ago and I've been in love ever since!
Asymmetrical setting: This easily can be converted so that the borders are all equal, but where's the fun in that? Sometimes doing something unexpected makes for a better quilt!
Quilting: I love the circles extending out of the center applique and onto the borders. It's a neat optical illusion. And the long wavy lines on the side kinda remind me of seaweed. I think of the ocean when I see this - bubbles and seaweed!
