Like a wheel within a wheel ...

Three of us chose similar fabric kits at the Serendipity Circles workshop early last month, and pooled our efforts to make enough blocks for a quilt top that will be donated to a community project.  Miriam (whose corgi seems to approve!) sewed them together and quilted and bound it.

... Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel

As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Windmills of your mind, theme song for The Thomas Crown Affair, 1968
Music: Michel Legrand; Lyrics (English): Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman

We will have more circle quilts to share after our community sewing day this week ... will they evoke songs from our youth too? Suggestions welcome ...
