Running in circles

Lately that's what I'm doing. I have so much to get done for market and half of it hinges on the fact that fabric actually gets here in time. It's entirely too much for an OCD control freak like myself.

So I decided to spend my time doing something else. Running in circles. :o)

This is a not-so-great shot of the latest quilting I've been working on. Concentric circles. Not an easy task.

Originally I called a friend with a computerized longarm to see if she had time to do it. After discussing for a while we decided that I would actually have more range for the large circles on my machine than a longarm has. Of course, her circles would've been less "wonky" than mine. But I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Here's a pic of the quilt pre-quilted. It will take the place of the other quilt on the Cheery O's cover. I made it using Michael Miller's Citron and Grey color story plus a few other M&M prints that went along.

I am really LOVING this quilt! I've made it 3 times now in completely different color stories and I LOVE it every time.

And now, since I just can't help myself- the ever exciting slevage shot:

*SQUEEL!* (not like a pig. Ok, maybe like a pig. A very EXCITED pig!) :o)
