I've had this idea for a long time, I just haven't done to much about it. Now when I have many other things (I should be doing) and multiple projects on the go....I start to fool around with it. I just grabbed a few scraps and started playing.
I am liking the black thread...something I've not quilted very much with.
I used raw edge applique for the circles....something I won't be doing for the actual project. I think I will use inset seams instead....just a little more finished looking.
These test squares or almost mini quilts can be very valuable in making some of these decisions.
