"All Shook Up"

I don't know about the weather you might be having but we had an earthquake here in my part of the world which is very unusual! It's the second one I've ever been in (other one on the west coast), but sure made for an interesting afternoon. I was on the fifth floor of a building and the building swayed back and forth, complete with pictures on walls doing a jig themselves. A litte disconcerting but everything was fine ....freaked a few people out nonetheless.
I get home tonight, put my daughter to bed and then pop on the there are tornado watches and warnings coming our way...

Crazy weather that's for sure!

Circle Quilt Top - so far...

I've been really slacking on the blog front so I thought I would include a picture or two of what I've been up to. I've been slowly working on this quilt top (tutorial - CluckCluckSew) but now that I have it put together, I think I want to make it a bit bigger. Hopefully I have enough variety in my fabrics to squeeze out 12 or so more blocks...we'll see what happens! I also can't decide on my backing as I've played around with the idea of a minky back instead of a fabric/quilt back...but then I'm not sure about quilting minky in a circular quilt design. Any time I've used minky I've always quilted in straight lines and I think this top screams for some more circles, don't you!

Miss G has graduated again from her program at the Little Gym. As you can see she had a lot of fun yesterday!

Ciao for now!!
