Trending: Circle Quilts at QuiltCon

March 11, 2022

One of my favorite aspects of attending a quilt show is walking through the exhibits and attempting to find the current trends in quilting. Last week I posted photos of the neutral color palettes that were popping up throughout the show.

This week, I am turning my attention to the dynamic circle motifs were well represented throughout QuiltCon. Many of these quilts include pieced or appliquéd curves, but there are several quilts that create visual circles by using only straight line piecing!

Do these quilts inspire you to use circles in your designs?

NONE OF THE QUILTS PICTURED IN THIS POST ARE MY WORK! Each work is labeled with the maker and their Instagram handle when available. These are in no particular order, and this post may take longer than usual to load because there are so many fun quilts to share!
