Bling on the Bias by Terry Aske, 2015

For this quilt, I used a simple circle design, with improv strip-piecing. I made freezer paper templates for the circle and background, then randomly cut strips and sewed them together to cover the freezer paper templates. The circle shape was machine appliqued to the background. I quilted straight, randomly spaced lines on the diagonal, somewhat following the seams in the circle. I liked the subtle plaid effect on the background, so in two of the corners I added a couple of lines of quilting in the opposite direction. I finished the edges with a facing.
