Quilty Circle Update: Valentine's and More!

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!
