Those cubists were a bunch of squares.

I love that! Great use of fabrics, so mod but still cozy. Beautiful.

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! 

Can you explain how you did the circles? Did you just tuck the edges under and sew it on top?

I used a lazy quick method to attach each circle to the light colored fabric squares, and then to attach the light colored fabric squares to the large squares.  I just zig-zagged around the cut out piece and then went back after the pieces were attached to the large squares and quilted each one in a spiral.


if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I remember the first bigger than a toddler (a king) sized quilt I made.... and It seemed HUGE.... what a feeling of satisfaction when you are finally done.... Love the colors and the circles are great

I really like your duvet cover. I have been thinking about trying quilting. It seems like so much work, and I'm not sure how easy it would be on a regular sewing machine. This seems do-able.  Did you design it yourself or is it from a pattern?
