I promised to quilt

I finished quilting the Circles Quilt, first reported a long long time ago HERE, and oh, hey, that was even after I had the top finished, way before that!  Do not fret though, if you feel you have tops way older than this that have not been quilted, because I DO TOO.  Way, way older, almost like Star Wars long time ago.

Any who, I made millions of small circles with the quilting, and thank you, this top was lap size for all those bubble circles.  As I was quilting in the border, I found out that my back didn't quite stretch all the way to the edge of the top on one side.  I stopped the quilting before the edge, and I added a strip of fabric to the back where it came up short.  

New Bee!  Yay, needed that!  I had one ending in August, and I almost had free time on my hands!  Wasn't sure what I would do with that, so very quickly I found a Bee that was starting.  Won't this make an awesome Halloween themed quilt?

This is my 6.5" center for a local round robin with the Richmond Modern Quilt Guild.  We're starting small.  I can do small.

I was away for a few days, and when I returned there was a nice little package of Kona Cottons from, who has excellent prices for Kona Cottons.  I randomly picked colors, but also picked some colors to go with prints I had recently bought, but don't have a photo of.  Not sure if I should always be showing off fabric I have hoarded purchased for making future quilts or at least quilt tops.  I always have a plan, it just may take a few years to execute.

Quarter log cabins for a local bee.  We each made 2 with batiks.  

I would like to press something, but my board seems to be being used as a place for storage at the moment.  And block layout planning for Sherbet Pips.  Most of the rest of my room looks like this too.

really love how your circle quilt is turning out, the quilting is great! And a month ago I just bought an iron like yours, I was surprised how much I love it.
