The Bullseye quilts are part of a project I am working on with Julie Zaccone Stiller and Adrienne Acoba. It started out as a round robin block exercise. The exercise was inspired by a different bullseye project done by the Quilt Mavericks quilt group. We send each other squares of a certain color of fabric and proceed to add circles (or another shape) to them using the bullseye pattern. The interesting thing about this pattern is the way one can play with color. It is interesting to see the colors change as additional layers of fabric are added. When the blocks were complete, we cut the squares up and kept some of each block and sent other parts to the others, so the quilts are truly ‘sister’ quilts. The arrangement of the blocks is my own design. Julie and Adrienne arranged their blocks differently. The project has expanded to the point where we are working on creating a bullseye quilt for each of the rainbow colors.
Colleen Granger quilted Seeing Red. Seeing Red was on display at the offices of Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass LLP for several years.
Colleen Granger quilted Feelin’ Blue. Feelin’ Blue was displayed at the offices of Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass LLP.
Passionate Purple was also quilted by Colleen Granger.
In 2022, Adrienne, Friend Julie and I decided to do another round robin for the next quilt in the series. We picked orange as the background, though I lobbied hard for pink. I finished Orange You Glad in March 2023. It is 63 inches by 63 inches.
The black Bullseye quilt, called Original Bullseye. It spurred us on to do this group project.
