Circles of Inspiration

When I flew into Pasco airport in Washington State last month, I was fascinated by the shape, texture and colour of the irrigation crop circles:




I have so many ideas about how these circles might translate into a quilt. Free cut pieced circles are one possible interpretation:

Thank goodness for digital cameras which capture different layouts:

Or maybe split the quilt into two. One with dark circles:

The other with light:

I think I am just going to keep sewing circles and see what happens. This might just turn into a series...

I like the way you've interpreted this photo and look forward to seeing the final placement.
