A must finish for November ALYoF

I have had a hard time finishing this quilt. I think I am somewhat intimidated by it. I love it and I am nervous that the quilting will not be right. This month, I plan to put on my big girl pants and jump in. I need to finish it by 30th November so I can enter it in the Quiltcon Festival (hopefully, my second entry).

So what quilt am I talking about….you guessed it “Phased Circles”.

The back was made to complement the colors in the front, featuring the black, white and grey prints from Carolyn’s lines….a total of 36 prints (yes, I have an obsession).

The quilt is basted, all I need to do is quilt and bind it and its done. Linking up with Melissa @ Sew Bittersweet Designs for A lovely year of finishes (See button on the right).

    this is such a pretty quilt. I will be even prettier when finished. Way to go.
    I love the PP bird on your header. I will be making placemats this winter for spring and summer with PP birds on them.

    I have more than a few completed quilt tops that have sat on the shelf because I love them so much and don’t think my quilting skills are good enough … yet. Your quilt is going to be beautiful and I hope you go for it.

    Can’t wait to see what you end up quilting on it! I can understand why you feel scared of it though; i wouldn’t know where to begin quilting it either!!

    You’ve got this! The design is so amazing, you can go simple with the quilting. I understand the pressure to do something awesome, but be confident that it already is! Anything you do will just make it more awesome and closer to done.

    I also have a pile of quilts I’m holding onto until my skills improve. When will we consider our skills to be good enough? I love this quilt. The colours are incredible. Good luck with the quilting.
