Polyester Circles Quilt


This quirky polyester circles quilt came from an eBay seller in New Mexico. It is 62" x 87" and is backed and bound with a heavy canvas fabric with a plaid similar to Madras. The circles are raw-edge machine appliquéd and tied in the centers with black yarn.





Fun piece, an incredible bargain, very lively colors. It is a pattern I have not seen before in a 1970s quilt, so it caught my eye right away. When I saw what an insane bargain it was, I clicked Buy It Now. Love it!

  6. I wonder how she managed to get the circles so nice and (relatively) round, especially on stretchy fabric! I remember appliqueing on poly and poly blends, mostly embellishing little dresses and jumpsuits for my kids, and it was a bear to get them flat! Of course, my machine at the time was a very basic Touch n' Sew, the one with the bobbin that held 30 yards of thread, so it was really hard to do fine work. Still, that little workhorse cranked out an awful lot of things!
