Week Six Journal

For my February journal quilts, I've take the theme of circles in nature. This quilt is inspired by dew drops on a spider's web. I didn't really plan to use organza in all my February quilts, but my design for next week uses organza as well. Since I've never really worked much with organza or with sheers, I'm learning to use new materials as well.

I also haven't really quilted with many small circles like this before. I really admire the small circle stippling that so many award winning art quilts use, but when I've tried to quilt in circles, they've never really kept quite true. Making so many tiny circles, I got better with each row. I'm not sure how that will translate into circle stippling, but we'll see.
