I got the blocks put together for the first two rows of my circle quilt. So far, I'm liking it! The first blocks on the left of each row have a little paper pinned on with the row number, to help me keep everything straight while I'm sewing. I haven't pressed any seams yet; I'm waiting until all the blocks are done and I can make sure I like the layout. Then I'll press the seams alternating "in" and "out" so the top will go together smoothly.
I have a couple of small projects I want to make for Christmas gifts and I think I'm going to work on one of those this afternoon. I might sew 6 more circle blocks together first though.
Also--I wanted to tell you about something I'm working on for January.
I'm going to host a free motion quilting challenge. My hope is that people who haven't tried free motion quilting will give it a try, and that those with a little (or a lot of) experience will maybe try something new with their free motion quilting. I'm planning on having a link-up at the end of the month for people to share projects with their new skills. Oh yeah, there will be prizes, too! I'm still working on the details, but for now if you have any questions or problems related to free motion quilting, let me know in the comments and I'll work on including answers next month, ok?
