Circling New Zealand
A lot of this fabric has had a Kiwiana theme and last year I embarked on making several Kiwiana theme fabrics in an attempt to destash.
This was the first quilt top I made in this theme but it has only recently been finished thanks to Linda's machine quilting abilities.
Part of the scrap stash was a stack of irregular circular pieces.
I stitched them to black background squares leaving a raw edge on the circles. I then quartered the squares, mixed them up and sewed them back together again.
Linda did swirls within the circles and then used some lovely red and black variegated thread to highlight the black background.
We are happy to be sending it to its new owner.
I have to add that I still have a lot of these circles in our stash and hope to be finding other creative ways of using them.
