roundish shapes

Circles are cool. Concentric circles are cool x cool. Frank Stella capitalized on this coolness back in the 1960's with some large paintings of concentric circles. These paintings have influenced a lot of quilts since then. I'm just adding to the pile with this one.

I wanted to play with some random colors and see how the perception of the background color changes between the surrounding two colors. I'm playing with my Josef Albers app

Plus, it's very relaxing to sew in circles.
