WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON.....

I've been working on my circles of course.  I'm on day 213 of making these circles.  I've got the July circles done...well I thought I did.  I counted and I'm one short.  So have to finish that one up and on to August.  You can check out all the circles over at Quilty Folk. 
I also used colors for the RSC, what is this you might ask.  Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the idea is to use up all your scraps.  For the month of July, the colors were Hot Pink with pink, red and green added in.  The colors for August are Purples with Greens.
I've started putting my circles together, I've got January and February all done.
I'm working on March now.  I think I'm going with 3 months across for my width, the length will be the rest of the year.  I'm also going to change the smiley faces.  I'm going to use a yellow or green smiley face for April, May and June.

I've also been working on my Gwinnie Medallion quilt.  You can check out the info over at Humble Quilts.  The choice for July was Log Cabin.  Weeeeellllll, I don't piece blocks, I do needle turn applique, so had to get a little inventive on this one.  So I done Lincoln Logs in place of Log Cabin.
The next border for August is Stars.  So I'll have to figure out what to do with that one.  It has to be applique.  I'll have to surf the web for a star.  You may notice it's a little wrinkled, my iron decided to quit on me, so have to buy a new one.  Hoping to get one tomorrow while I'm out and about.  So what has everyone else been working on?

  3. I like your new batch of circles. Good for you on having a plan how to put them together. What do the smiley faces indicate (maybe an awesome day)?

  4. Your circles all look good together. That is my next job to start sewing them up otherwise it will be a daunting task at the end.

  5. Love your creativity for the log cabin round! Wish I would have thought of something like that--piecing enough blocks to go all the way around my top took forever!

  6. You have a nice collection of circles; they look good all together. Your alternative for the log cabin blocks works well.

  7. I so intended to do the 365 QAL. Maybe can start that (late) soon. Your Gwennie looks awesome. The Lincoln Logs is very creative.

  8. I love how inventive we have to become for this Gwenny QAL. I don't think I've visited your previous posts for this qal because your block looks new to me. I like your basket and your bright first border.
