Quilt Lab - Cultured

May means circles!

Cultured from Quilt Lab by Alexandra Winston

Tomorrow Katy is going to be posting about Cultured.

Before you head over there I want to talk about some of the ideas behind the quilt. The main techniques are freezer paper circles, overlapping circles, and concentric circles. That's a lot of circles!

I don't want this to just be a book about recreating the designs. I want you to be able to take the techniques and run with them. So instead of showing you another Cultered quilt, I want to show you this guy.

This isn't new, but I did make it after completing the quilts for Quilt Lab, so I had circles on the brain!

Lots of circles! You can see that some overlap and some are full circles within circles. Just another option. Remember to keep your mind open and make these ideas into something unique and yours!


  1. This one is fun, and I do remember that small block of nested circles you made - it took my breath away! Still does!

  2. So cool! Makes me want to try it!

  3. I love this. So modern and fun.


Thanks for dropping by. Is something on your mind?
