The first thing I did was make stratas in two colorways using 1 1/4" strips of hand dyed and batiks. I then used my Olfa circle rotary and cut circles in different sizes. I appliqued these onto a backing of velvet encrusted with glitter using satin stitch. Next, I layered a deep purple-glitter tulle over all, stitched around the circles, then quilted the background in circles.
I actually had no idea where I was going with this when I started...just chose the colors and went for it. My husband thinks it looks like billiards...thus "Galactic Billiards".
I have always loved working with circles, and have made many quilts based on circle themes. I really had fun with this one!
It measures 18"x24"
