I have a spot in my gallery for the Bullseyes, but it is unsatisfactory and I need to rewrite the page. This needed, yet still undone, update spurred me on to show all of the bullseye quilts here.
I realized in looking at them that they are another color project like the Fabric of the Year quilts.
Original Bullseye: The black background provided a way for the other colors to shine out from the black.I like having each circle separate. I remember thinking how clever I was to include partial circles as well.
Seeing Red: The red background is bright and cheerful and I do like the way the loops are continuous.
Feelin’ Blue: we decided that trying different shapes would be a good idea. I had to add background pieces to prevent jagged edges or partial squares. While I like this quilt, I prefer the circular versions.
Passionate Purple: this one might be my favorite, though all of the different quilts bring something special. I like the way the loops are finite and that they are different sizes. I hesitate to duplicate the idea for the recent orange version, but I am sorely tempted.
I really want to make quilts in this style from all the colors with my friends. I don’t want to do them by myself. The element of surprise when others add the rounds is part of the fun.
