Going in Circles

I'm going in circles.  Whenever Nancy and I visit a quilt show, I am drawn to the quilts with circles.  With circles, you can go around and around, either spinning your wheels or knowing exactly what you're aiming for.  Curves are gentle, mellow, soothing...  In the case of this series I seem to be exploring, circles will be perfected and learned from, until the next shape presents itself.  The striped four-patch blocks were pieced some time ago. Today I added the double border, mitered the corners and cut circles to applique.

The other quilt is going to Nancy to stitch her magic into it.

The circles really are great, a really nice variation.
