Allie's "Going Around in Circles Again" Quilt

Allie is working on a new quilt - this one as a belated wedding gift for the niece of the family she works for in New York. She wanted to do a version of the double wedding ring, but different. Here is what she has so far. Going Around in Circles Layout She is using a pattern called "Going Around in Circles Again" using scraps of blues and greens. The circles are paper-pieced, then machine-appliqued onto the background fabric. Here is a closer view - Going Around in Circles with some of the pins in. Here Going Around in Circles - close-up and here Circles are sewn down you can see the design even closer. I believe I recognize some of my fabrics! When Allie comes to Virginia she stays in our guest/sewing room and sometimes some of my fabrics make their way into her bags. She has been having more time to work on it recently since it is very definitely winter still in the Hudson Valley. I'm hoping she sends more photos soon!

Very pretty. Do you know how she plans to quilt it? We're headed to Boston tomorrow- remind me again where in NY Allie is. I recall that we cross the Hudson more than once.
