Kandinsky's Circles Quilting Done!

After some inspiration from my swap partner, Miki, I was able to complete the quilting on the Kandinsky Circles!  I wanted to keep with the circles idea, but didn't want the quilting to just be, well, boring.

So I did semi-oblong circles that touch in places to give me crescent moon shapes to then stipple quilt within.  Tiny stipple quilting, mind you.  It was great fun to do and I like the final effect!

Since I couldn't figure out what to put on the back, I pieced some hand dyed squares.  With the circle quilting it looks pretty neat!  Now all I have left is the binding!

Your quilting is simply perfect for your piece! You have inspired me to "get out of the ditch" and play a little.
