Laura Noveck finished her Bullseye quilt and the backstory is fun! First the photo…
I thought you might get a kick out of seeing my Bullseye Quilt. It was mostly completed with my stash fabrics. I only purchased 2 fat quarters for setting squares. You taught this class at the Daytona Beach AQS show in 2019 where I was so impressed by you and your project. You gave me the tools and confidence to take this on. This became my Covid quilt.
In entering it in our local guild show (150 members), I received a First Place in my size category as well as a “Viewers Choice Award.” I was told that it was also considered for “Best of Show.” I wanted to have you see it and thank you for the inspiration. I am very proud of it. I have attached a better photo if you want to see more detail.
I did get a kick out of Laura’s quilt because it is so good! And I love that she made it mostly with fabric from her stash. Well done, Laura, and thank you for sharing you lovely quilt with us!
Debra Miller sent me this photo of her finished Bullseye wall quilt. Here’s the story:
I took your bullseye class at the Ky Heritage Quilt Society getaway (Cave City, KY) in June 2019. Finally finished the quilt during Covid shutdown. Did the quilting myself. Trimmed with flying geese and done with extra trapunto behind the bullseye. Measures 46” square. Unfortunately I didn’t win a ribbon (at the Kentucky State Fair 2021) but I love it and so does my husband. I have a place for it in a guest bedroom. Thanks for great instruction. I picked up a lot in your class.

Debra, your quilt is lovely and how wonderful that you got to share it in person with those who saw it at the fair and here, online! It does not need a ribbon to be a winner :-). Thank you for sharing it with us!
On a personal note, I always enjoy hearing when projects started in one of my classes get finished. If any of you are interested in making a Bullseye quilt, large or small, you can find the book here AND you can find my online class that includes the ebook on Creative Spark.

Carin Shaughnessy shared her finished Bullseye quilt top. It’s beautiful! She says: “I really really enjoyed this pattern and plan to make it again.” I say, great! Carin, you made a wonderful, happy quilt! Well done!
Maureen Moore Scheevel finished her Bullseye quilt top. She was in my virtual class with her guild, the Austin Area Quilters Guild. Here’s Maureen’s pieced top with all 7 rings. Isn’t it amazing!!!!
I especially love the yellow woven through the quilt… bright in the center, calmer, that a little higher intensity. It adds life and movement to the whole quilt. Maureen, you made a winner! Well done and thank you for sharing your quilt with us!
Vicci Conway took my Bullseye class and she is very excited about finishing her wall quilt, and deservedly so! Her Bullseye pulls you in and makes you look closer:
I think the fabric is all the same print, in different colors. It works really well and it a fine example of how cool it is when you cut up big prints. You only see the flower design in the big corner pieces. Everywhere else the print reads as texture, not flowers.
I taught two virtual classes to the Austin Area Quilt Guild last weekend. Jennifer Padden is the first to send me a photo of her finished Bullseye block. Isn’t it fantastic?! I don’t remember seeing this block made up in reproduction fabrics before and I do love it :-). Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing!
