A Quilter’s Dozen






I finished my pieced Maze and Vale Circle Quilt today.  It reminds so many people of donuts that I am calling it “A Quilter’s Dozen” Quilt. (the name was suggested by an Instagram friend.  Thanks T. Ninoe)  To see the details of my planning and piecing look back at my previous blog post about it (Quilting Calm | Entropy Always Wins).

Concentric Square quilting with Aurifil thread centered over the upper secondary square pattern was done in hopes of highlighting it. I used pepper cotton in a blue for the backing to match the Japanese indigo dyed circle on the front and bound it all in a natural linen.

I am about to embark on a complicated bias tape quilt (my first attempt at bias tape quilting).  Wish me luck!

  1. Ah, donuts, I remember donuts. I really like your quilt, too.
    As for wishing you luck with your bias tape — sunny perseverance will see you through!

  2. You’ll be kicking bias butt, I’m sure. Especially if this quilt is any indication. I could look at this for ages, I love the play between the shapes and negative space and then the quilting adds another dimension on top of that. Stellar piece, Hillary, thanks for letting us follow along!

  3. I love every single thing about this, Hillary. Art at its finest. I’ve never heard of pepper cotton so I’ll have to look that up.

  4. I think the quilting has the desired effect here; the secondary pattern is fun to see pop out for the first time. Good luck with the bias tape; it will be great to see what you create.
