I am totally on the Quilty Circle bandwagon. Maybe a little obsessed even! I wanted a purpose for all the circles so I began preparing them around a Happy Valentine's day theme. I used part of a 5 inch charm pack from Kiss Kiss by Moda and part of a Red and White charm pack. Both were purchased last year from Missouri Star Quilt Company. I have had SUCH A GOOD TIME prepping and sewing these circles. Working on these happy circles have gotten me through the blahs of January.
I cut out a big red heart and stitched around it, just because it seemed to be what I should do with that big red heart. I pretty much exhausted my stash of Valentine's prints so I started adding prints I like. Subjects I like, i.e. birds, cats and dogs. Bicycles and butterflies.
I am a big fan of shoes and purses....at least I really was when I was working full time. I love this print.
I could have gone bigger but this will make a nice sized table runner. I just need to get back to sewing and get it finished by the 14th!
And that's not all...I have prepped circles to work on for Halloween.
That's a Scaredy Cat charm pack from Minick and Simpson from a few years ago. I think this circle project will be a good project to feature those prints using them in Halloween circles.
And I am working on stash circles too! As I was squaring up ragged ends of my stash for organization purposes, I cut circles, squares and strips to work on the mood circles/squares. I haven't done the circle a day as Audrey intended. I prepare them in no certain order and no theme and I work on them in the evening. I am calling them Final Rounds. I am using fabric bits and pieces that I want to get rid of.
So yeah I am having a big time!
