Novelty Circles Quilt

I started making a quilt with novelty fabric years and years ago.  It started with a different pattern, but it wasn't working out and I knew I wouldn't finish that one. So I decided to rip out what I could save and made some reverse applique circles instead. I sewed it into a top and then put it away for a few more years. Well I was looking for something else and I saw this top and decided to finish it. I backed it with white flannel to make it soft and then I did a simple grid on point for the quilting. I am so glad it is finished!!!
I used a variety of novelty fabrics in all the circles.
Quilted in a simple grid on point.

Some of these fabrics I have had for many, many years. The Mickey Mouse fabric I bought decades ago. I made a jacket for my son's 2nd birthday because he loved Mickey Mouse. My son will be turning 29 years old in May!!! Where did the time go???

  3. I love the quilt, its a great way to use novelty fabrics and let them shine. Curves on quilts has always stumped me. Did you make the circles with fusible web and then put them on the square or did you add it another way. What ever you did it looks great.

  4. That is a great quilt!! Still relevant in today's world with all the find & seek toys these days!! I used inset circles for a dresden quilt I made, they aren't so bad once you get the hang of them! Doesn't it feel good to finish something laying around? Great work!!

  10. Great quilt finish, Daryl. I think I have some of these same prints as charm squares from eBay and Etsy sellers. I made a chevron quilt that is an I Spy quilt. The blocks have been made since Super Bowl Sunday 2012. Thanks for sharing your fun finish.
