seventeen circles

Last fall I started a project that I left "simmering" while I thought about what to do about the center applique. I had decided that my original choice was too jarring so I put it aside and now I'm happy with my selection of a more subdued fabric. I'm wondering why I made 17 of them. Maybe the intent was to use 16 squares (4 x 4) and I made a spare? Now I'm actually thinking of using 9 of them and experimenting with the stitching so the end result will probably not be as traditional as it now appears. By the way, the blocks are all different.

I have a bunch of those, too! I even bought some old blocks at a quilt show. Best left simmering for now...

I like it with the subtle center. Love the photo out your window too!

Sometimes when you leave something alone for a while, and then come back to it, you can make it into something wonderful!
