Playing Catch Up

Since I was gone the month of May, that put me behind a month on making my circles for the boys I spy quilts. 

I was able to get done 41 of them this month (June) but still put me a little behind. 

Here's a closer look and I'm not sure what my total count is because I haven't counted them in a couple months. 

Seeing how I'm making two quilts I just keep on making circles knowing that I need lots and lots and lots of circles.

I have this pile here of such cute novelty prints to make circles out of, which keeps my enthusiasm going. I'm not sure if I will have to keep this up until November or if I can have enough circles made before that and start my quilt tops.

Now this month colors for the RSC over at so scrappy is pink or as she put that hot pink and some lime. This will be great colors for another baby quilt.

 I believe I will do it in 30's reproduction prints see'n how I have lots of those. Pink and green are very popular color way in 30's. I haven't came up with a pattern yet but what I'm going to do is try various ways of making half square triangles.

Being that the "words to live by" quilt that I'm in the process of making requires 672 HST.
In the pattern that I have uses a half square triangle paper that I do not have. So I've been online investigating other methods for making a large quantity of half square triangles at one time. I will be doing these different techniques and will be posting the results of my experiment.
That is while watching the Outlanders marathon they are showing today in anticipation of the season finale tonight
I'll be using the pink and green fabric so once I'm done I can go ahead and use those HST into this month RSC.
My plan is to do that today and have that posted this evening I'll also put a link on this post to the upcoming post that I'll have just in case you want to come back and check
Linking this up over with Audrey at quilty folk


  1. I love your circles! You have many many lovely fabrics.

  2. Some very cute fabrics in those circles. I have just pulled all my hot pink fabric also. Off to sew them up now.

  3. Very fun circles! You've managed to catch up quite a bit.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
