I had picked up a pattern called Ring Toss by Swirly Girls awhile ago and figured this was the perfect quilt to make. I found batiks to match the colours and a background which looks like giraffe spots and used the giraffe fabric on the back so I wouldn't have to cut them apart. The pattern calls for 5 FQ's, but I had 10 colours. I used the Creative Grids Circle Savvy Ruler which works very quickly.
Since I was on a deadline, I quilted organic lines in the border and I really like the way that turned out. I was thinking circles, but couldn't up the courage quite yet :-).
I quilted the center of each circle with a King Tut variegated thread and the rest with a lovely light orange Magnifico from Superior Threads purchased from Anita Zobens of Cotton Mill Thread works.
I found the binding at Seven Sisters quilt shop and when I got home, realized it was from the Dr. Suess line! No wonder I liked it :-).
Since I had cut out double the circles, I made two tops at a time using a solid Kona Cotton for the center. I hope to do some modernish quilting in this one.
