Circles are appearing and 1st Hexagon set done.

Yes, we have circles appearing in my batik version of the Eye Fooler  pattern designed by Krisanne Watkins.

I KNEW I would love this pattern. And I was right. Even DH likes it!!!!

I need to make more of the "B" block. I was not sure I was going to make a full size version of this pattern. But I am. So more blocks need to be made. I did go ahead and make all the units needed ahead of time. I can always use them in another quilt.  They are waiting in an ice cream container. But I am totally loving how this has so much movement and will make it as big as the pattern calls for. It says to use a 90" X 110" batting. And I am sure that is a smidge bigger than the finished size of the quilt.

This was my first circle appearing this morning . WHOOHOOO!!!!

Then my design wall began to be VERY overcrowded. I had to move all the other projects temporarily. Yes, I work on multiple projects at the same time.
And I can see they are all batiks.....love 'em!!

I have my first set of hexagons done for the swap I signed up for. Only 34 more sets to go. Well, I actually signed up for two swaps. The other one is all 30's fabrics (35 sets also). But I have to go dig that fabric out from under the quilt frame. I will do that soon....as I said I multitask.
At last night's guild meeting I was able to baste 12 hexies while visiting. Then we played a round of quilting bingo so I had to stop sewing. I have never played bingo before. It was fun. I won a nice quilt journal.

I made homemade chicken and noodles a few days ago. I had lots of broth and chicken meat leftover. So when DH did his snow removal yet again, I made chicken ribble soup just for him. The ribbles have not been added yet. But doesn't it look yummy??? I am not a good cook. My food is not pretty or fancy. But there are a few meals that I do like to make because they always turn out for me.

DH says he heard a robin sing this afternoon. I believe him!!!!

I am making the same quilt. I love it. I decided to make four circles across the top so it will fit my king size bed. So I think it will end up 104 inches square..mine is a made from scrapes.

Oh Sue - another beauty - this one has been on my "to do" list for sooooo long - I just love how it seems to shimmer, and your excellent sense of color makes it a beauty!

Not sure what ribbles are, have to google.

I've had all the parts for this quilt cut for about a year and I started using it as leader/enders, initially. But it got bumped down the list by other projects. This makes me want to get it out again. I really love this quilt!
(I tried to post this earlier and blogger went weird on me. If you get two comments from me you can delete this.)

Jan said...

Wow I love that quilt, it is beautiful and what a fun way to use up scraps as well as colour controlled. need to search your blog now to see where pattern came from.

love your circle quilt, would love to start something, but have so many things I need to finish first!

Carolyn Sullivan said...

Oh that is a beauty! where did you get the pattern again? and you are doing it w Batiks? the same batik fabric? or different ones?
also is the fooler that the circles are really not curved? those are triangles yes?

Ribbles are just dollops of noodle dough dropped into the boiling pot.

I have the eyefooler pattern on my next up list, although it is called something else and the sample is made in fall tones.

Yours is lovely! Sharyn in Kalama

I love that block. I copied it off years ago but haven't sewn it yet. Just one of that block would make a nice wallhanging. Congratulations for getting it started!

Grandma said...

I love that pattern too. Did you get it through a quilt shop? I have been searching for it. Please let us know where you purchased it.

I love your quilt and can see that as my next big quilt. I love changing out quilts on my bed and this looks like one I would love to sleep under.

Frances Meredith said...

I love your fabrics in your Eyefooler, it looks amazing.

Debra said...

Your quilt is looking fabulous, your colours are lovely. It really looks like a pattern that would be great to have. I'm sure she's sold out after everyone sees your quilt.

Saska said...

love this pattern! Can you tell me how big each block is?

The colors are great. Hard to beat a scrappy quilt.

Yes, I made Bonnie's 4-million/trillion pieced mystery too...several of them. But, don't they always turn out great!
