Getting Up Close with Big Circle Quilting with Orange Slices

 Today, I am sharing big circle quilting.  I think it is a perfect choice for this quilt. The circles and orange slices repeat the design of the whimsical fabric.

 The big circles and orange slices really add a cool twist to this quilt.
 I used a thread color called pearl.  It looks like a very lite grey.  
 It works perfectly, because it isn't a stark white thread and it lightly shows on the back and blends nicely on the front of the quilt.

The circles range in size from 2 inches to 4 inches in diameter.  The orange slices are about 3 to 4 inches.

The big circle quilting is a perfect choice for this quilt!

Have a great day!

It looks great and that's such a cute design! I'm actually working on a table runner w/ similar shades but a black backing and have been struggling with what color to use for the quilting. Gray sounds like a great color-thanks for the idea!

The "orange slice" quilt design really works well with this quilt. Red, white, and black always look good together.

That looks great. I am new to quilting and so ask too many questions. But I must ask. I quilted my first machine quilted quilt last week I believe you call it in the ditch. I want to freestyle quilt can you do those on just a regular sewing machine?
