First off, thank you ALL so much for your kind words about my oh my stars! quilt. Those long time WIPs make for especially sweet finishes! I appreciate each and every sweet comment that you left!
About a week ago, I started a new portable project. I had the need for one, since my star quilt is finished. I have to say, this quilt was quite pre-meditated!

Each of the irregular circles are hand basted onto a 4" background square and then appliqued down. I was inspired by Carolyn's aerial grove quilt and followed the hand applique instructions she gives in her book Savor Each Stitch.

Happy Monday to you!
