And off to the fair it goes...

The Circle Quilt for the fair is finally complete!  I'm taking a few other small projects I made this year, but this one is what took the most time and effort.  I had some wonderful helpers taking photos tonight...
It's so big that it's hard to get it all!  
And I actually finished hand-sewing the binding yesterday.... two days before it is due to be turned in...... that is new for me! =)
I put a border around the circles to kindof "stop" the design before the main border.
The border fabric has circles, which I chose because of the circle blocks. 
 I did buy the borders and backing and binding for this one- but all the blocks were from what I had.  Since I'd purchased all the fabrics within the past couple of years, I was able to get the same prints as were in the quilt.
I think this is going into my etsy shop, which is getting aweful empty!  I love how it turned out, but don't really need one this size right now.
But I DO need a name for the quilt.... any suggestions?

It looks fabulous! Brown and turquoise is a favorite combo of mine.

Lisa! It's gorgeous! I, too, love the brown and turqoise color combination.

Sorry...no help with the name. I'm terrible at coming up with good ones...would probably embarass myself! :)

Wow that is beautifull!!!! I love how that turned out!

I've seen this quilt pattern called "Roundabout". That's as good as you;re going to get from me since I am also shamefully lacking in creativity when it comes to naming my own quilts.

It's a work of art Lisa! Completely beautiful. I suspect it'll be the star of the fair!

How about "Blue Harvest"?

Or maybe "Round & round we go!" Anyway, I just love how this turned out! Yes, I predict another blue ribbon job here.

Very nice work. I can see a blue ribbon hanging from it. Maybe even best in show!
How about "Round-about". I guess that is all I can come up with.

Love this quilt. browns and turquouise are a beautiful color combination!!

LOVE it! All that circle quilting deserves a blue ribbon!
Just to be a total hippie, the blue and brown is like earth and sky and so Full Circle came to me. Also, that is the name of Mom and Dad's farm, so it didn't take much to come up with that one. Still, love all those blues and browns. :-) Good luck!

YES I like Bethaney's suggested name better than my former suggestion!!! Go with that Lisa.
