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).


November Scrap-bee-licious blocks

Alyce over @ Wonderland by Alyce was the Scrap-bee-licious Queen bee this month. She requested 12 inch X & + blocks with a specific color palette. This was my first time making X & + blocks….I know shocking!!

Here are my two finished blocks:


I loved making them, and I have decided to make a whole quilt using greens, blues, reds, oranges and yellows.  I can’t get enough of them :-).

Here is a shout out to the others in the Scrap-bee-licious….
