A new design....

Not that I need to start a new project, but I saw this pattern in the Quilt Sampler magazine Spring/Summer 2008 called Circle of Scraps and just fell in love with it! But I did not like the way the borders looked and prefer more happy colors, so I got busy on my EQ6 and came up with my own version. I did a version with black background and cream background. My daughters like the black, but I prefer the cream as you can see the circles better.

Here is the Circle of Scraps from the Quilt Sampler magazine. It is simply the Kalaediascope block, but it sure makes a pretty quilt. The thing I did not like about this pattern was the way the points got chopped off in the border.

By the way...if you have not tried this magazine, it has to be my absolute favorite. Comes out twice a year and features 10 quilt shops around the country. I read it two and three times! I sure hope I have not violated some copyright by printing the picture!

I really like your cream version as well. What a pretty quilt that's going to be.

The quilt is gorgeous. I have EQ6, but I've never played with it. I guess I need to!

Congratulations on winning the tea pot over at Kim's blog.

Love your version of Circle of Scraps. The cream color really stands out & nice borders. Isn't Eq fun. I very rarly by books or patterns anymore. It's more fun to create!

Wow - both versions have their good sides. I like the black as it makes the colors really shine - and I like the cream as the circles show better. What a decision - guess you will have to make both. :-)

I love to play the 'what if' game with EQ6 when I see a new pattern. It always amazes me at the outcome. Both versions are great ... this would be a hard one to decide upon.

Thanks for reminding me about Quilt Sampler magazine's issue that has the 10 quilt shops featured. I always love to buy that one.
