Gray Circle of Squares

July seems to have devolved into whatever color for RSC. For my circle of squares blocks, I pulled gray strips and made two 12" finished blocks

I never know for sure how the blocks are going to look since I'm using a variety of background fabrics.

Block 1 has the colorful circles background. I thought the gray would show nicely against all those colors but I think they seem to have gotten lost.

Block 2 looks very distinguished with the black and off white background. I had thought they might blend in with the neutral and be rather blah. I definitely like this block the best.

Here is a link to the Circle of Squares pattern.

  1. i really like these blocks! i usually contemplate making some version of these for my RSC projects. maybe next year! (i love the bright circle fabric, but you're right about the grey getting lost...)

  2. Pretty blocks, Gretchen! I like the 2.

  3. Love the experiment with with the greys. July certainly seems to be cruising past us this month. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Gretchen, you are always busy with so many lovely projects. You really inspire me. I just love your feedsack quilt in Friday's post and these blocks are just delightful. You have kept me motivated on finishing my hand quilting on my Easter quilt and I quilt on it everyday. Thank you so much for all that you do and for sharing.

  5. In the great scheme of things, it’s all good! Number 2 shows up better in photos but in person, I’ll bet they are both pretty!
