Hello~

I'm Jessica, I'm new here~
I've been following this blog for a while and I've been completely amazed by the ways you all work with fabric.  You've inspired me to play with almost every idea that pops into my head..

I started out with a Bulls Eye block, and ended up with this (on the left):
And the strip on the right is what I came up with just foundation piecing strips/strings to a strip of thin fabric. Both strips will go into the NYC Metro Mod Guild's strip project at tomorrow's meeting.  Originally I wanted to make an entire bulls eye quilt, but after trying out this strip I think my curiosity has been satisfied and now I can move on to other projects.  The string pieced strip though.. that was fun.  I can see a whole quilt of these..

I love the look of that bull's eye strip. (Guess it's not a bull's eye anymore though, is it?!)

magpie,
i had thought about making 2 rows and keeping them as bulls eyes, but then the quarter circle idea won out and that's what I made. Who knows, maybe I'll revisit this idea again..

Love the juxtaposition of the strip and bulls eye together. Did they both make it to Metro Mod? I only remember seeing the bulls eye.

Jessica said...

Ellen, they both made it in. the strippy one just blended in with the other busy strippy pieces..
