I finally got back to my Circle Game quilt again this week. It has to be on hold for a bit because I am working on it with a friend and during soccer season my evenings are very full of (obviously) soccer!
So this past Monday my friend had the day off and we spent the morning sewing together. I was sure I would get so much done. However, it took over 2 hours to get this one circle inside a square. (the before picture is below) and it's still not done because it still needs the center circle to appliqued down.
I'm sure the rest of the circles will go into their squares much faster... lol! The upside to this is I am getting a lot more confident with set in seams :0)
Here are four more 6 inch blocks. I'm up to 20 now and I'm still having so much fun playing in my scraps. Maybe I'm making a big quilt of these after all?? I know there are scraps enough to make more than one large quilt :0)
And, I embroidered another bird crest. The stitches might be a bit wobbly but progress is happening. There are still no faces yet. Slow progress is still progress!
