I am so far keeping up with the 365 days of Circles – see the badge link on the sidebar to Audrey’s blog Quilty Folk that tells you about it. I didn’t realize the background was so closely the same on two of those blocks– next one will need more variety in it! You do see how you can save your left over bits of a charm square and by putting 4 strips together I had enough for another circle. My design wall is a little crowded right now LOL – something will have to be moved soon! Of course I will be keeping the circles in a stack as it will be a year long project and I won’t have room to keep it out all the time.
Here are the Bricks that are hand pieced right now but might end up being machine pieced – not sure – I just know I have a lot of hand projects going on and I might have to change some of that so my hands don’t start to bother me too much once again. I think I added one more row after I snapped this photo.
This much left of Floral Fantasy left to do – I didn’t get around to doing much of it last night – busy with other things!
I worked on this area on Monday night. I got right past the half way point for going across this final border.
I have been asked how do I plan on quilting the quilt Diamonds are Forever when I get it on the quilting frame next week. I really don’t know at this point – I just plan on getting it on the frame and then take a break from the quilting frame for a couple days to a week and maybe it will come to me. I’m not even sure what color thread I will use at this point. Sometimes I have no plan in mind and then I just look at the quilt after I get it on the frame and an idea comes to me. Although I have a lot of stencils I really do not use them that often and most times go kind of geometric or along with the shapes.
