Circuit ~ Ready to Quilt

In February of this year I went to Nashville for QuiltCon, but unlike the previous year I didn't take any classes and I only was able to spend a few hours at the show because I wanted to get out of Nashville before the traffic got really bad. But one of my favorite finds in the vendor hall was undeniably the Circuit quilt by Sylvia Schaefer.

Circuit drew me in immediately because black and neon green is such a cyberpunk look, and being an ex-engineer myself, naturally I'm attracted to anything "techy" looking. The kit makes a smaller quilt, but I was easily able to find black and green fabrics in my stash to complement the kit and now I have a beautiful 75 x 75 quilt top that I'm in love with.

The blocks are a mixture of traditional and foundation paper piecing (which I love), and the scrappy blacks and greens have such a great look. I used a lot of metallic fabrics, and it adds so much interest and shine to this quilt.

I don't quite know how to quilt this, but I also think it doesn't matter how I quilt this, just that I do. The most important thing about this quilt is the pattern and the fabric, which is busy enough that the quilting won't show. I just want to get this one finished soon(ish), because I really want to use it!


  1. This is so cool! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

  2. Very cool, very techy. Can't wait to see you work your quilting magic on this one!

  3. Very fun old skool circuit board! I love the metallic accents. You know, for better conductivity :)

  4. Liz, check out Yvonne Fuchs tutorial on circuitboard quilting here.

    It may fit your quilt top well.

  5. Wonderful quilt, and you are right, the fabric and pattern are the star. Whatever you do to quilt it will be perfect!

  6. Very awesome design, I love the lime green against the back prints.
