The sixteen circles in the Amitie BOM are now pieced. My first circle was made exactly as instructed in the BOM instructions. In the second one I popped a few of my own fabrics in and by the time I got to about the fifth, I was mixing my fabrics with Amitie's fabrics on every block and re-designing or designing new blocks from scratch. It's not that I don't love the Amitie deisgn, it's just that I have more fun making up my own designs that following instructions. In my real life I don't have a rebellious bone in my body. In my alter ego quilting life, all that changes. Just as Beyonce has her on stage alter ego, I have my quilting alter ego, her name is Lily and she breaks all the rules. Finally, in my mid-forties my latent rebellious streak has found its voice in patchworking. My children could not be more proud.
Anyway, what I was really going to say was which of the 16 circles is your favourite and why. Like my children, I can't pick favourites myself but I'd love to know yours. I'd also like to know which you think work the best based on fabric choices and why. There's a whole mix of fabrics in here and some blocks work better than others but that doesn't seem to matter so much once the whole lot are together.
