circle quilt update

I thought I'd post an update on my Circle Quilt blocks.  My friend and I have been getting together to work on them. Here are my first 4 blocks.  
 We worked on the double wedding ring block last night.  It was definitely out of my comfort zone.
My friend has been so patient with me. She puts up with much whining and complaining about the difficulty.  I could NOT be making these blocks without her!
 Here are both of our blocks.  Hers looks so calm and organized. Mine looks a bit wild and disorganized.  This could be a reflection of our personalities...  :0)
And a photo of the other blocks we have worked on. These will be 2 very different quilts when they are done.  It is good to be learning some new piecing skills and fun to be working on such a challenging project with a friend.

Happy Quilting!!

Your blocks look great. It will be fun to see your different versions.
Are you hand piecing these? there are so many little pieces

Monica said...

Awesome! I love the colorway you've chosen. I can't wait to see more.

Dixie said...

Both versions look great, but I really love your darker fabrics. Love that you are sharing your challenge!

Lori said...

I love your color choices and I bet you COULD do it by yourself if you need to. Of course, its always more fun with a friend!

Karen said...

They are looking wonderful. Is this a published pattern?

Each set of blocks is very pretty in their own ways. I think you are doing a great job.

I am very interested in this pattern also. I googled Circle quilt and did not get anything that looked like your pattern.
