Ready for Quilting!

I have been pushing hard to finish assembling the top for the appliqued circles quilt that I have been working on all year as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I am happy to report that my "Circling the Rainbow" top is finished!


Circling the Rainbow  51" x 62"
based on the pattern "True Colors" by Nancy Mahoney
from her book Simple Circles and Quick Curves
back for Circling the Rainbow

I will be dropping off this top and back with my wonderful LAQ Jan tomorrow, which is the reason I worked so hard to get it done. After many, many hours of hand stitching circles while riding the train to work, I am thrilled to have this top completed! I knew Nancy's pattern was perfect for an RSC project, and it turned out even better than I had hoped.

The other top going in to be quilted isn't scrappy, but it does include some light/lime green, our color of the month for the RSC. This is my Boston Fiesta top, along with the wild tropical print backing.
