Cellular & circular stitching

I found this great picture of some plant cellular structure on the web

So I thought I'd try and stich one up myself.

This is what I ended up with after about an hour of work. The circle is only about 18" around.

And here is a rusted, painted, and quilted thing that started out as a rusting technique presented in a class at the Sawtooth Center last month. I quilted it Sunday night, and might add some beads. Both make me think of spring, maybe the recent warm-up here is influencing me.


  1. Hi again,
    I was looking at another blog who is quilting cells and thought perhaps you would like to see her work.


  2. OOOOOOOOO I like these both very much!!!

  3. No one ever comments on my blog, so I want to thank you guys! I don't even check half the time to see if there are comments...

  4. That's pretty darned amazing stitching, Laura. Did you mark the lines, or just free hand them? It makes a really interesting pattern.

  5. Hi Karen,
    I didn't mark the lines, I just started in the middle and worked my way out.

  6. hey mom these look great!! cant wait to get my beach blanket :)
