Scrappy Circles

One of the first quilts I fell in love with was this one

Emily of CarolinaPatchworks designed and made it .... I had to have it for my little girl and then once I received it, I had to make it! Thankfully Emily soon developed a pattern and the rest is history!

So this is what I'm up to. I finally cut into the Bliss layer cake I've had lying around for some time now. It really felt good to cut into it.

Unscripted Bee Blocks

Thankfully I have a bunch of wonderful "co-bee" women who are very understanding as I'm seriously late on some on their blocks. I had a little bit of time the other night so I thought I would work on Sara's blocks for October. She asked that we do two log cabin blocks. This is what I whipped up for her:

I added a few extra strips from my own stash and I love how they turned out. Can't wait to see Sara's finished quilt:)

I've been slowly working on this little poncho for Miss P - it's called the "Lady Gaga" and I purchased it off Ravelry. It turned out a little too short on Miss P so now I'm adding a few inches so it'll fit her nicely.

And by the way, has anyone heard of the "Jelly Roll Race Quilts" - I'm sorry I don't have time to post a pic right now but if you go on Youtube you'll find a tutorial. What I like about it is that it's a great way to use a Jelly Roll, not to mention making a quilt top in a night (some people say they can do it in under an hour). I personally like the non-mitered version as you end up with a "brick/strip effect" - I love learning a new technique to use up those scraps or rolls!
