Practice Makes Perfect (I hope)!!!!!

I am going to practice making concentric circles today. The quilt is a pattern that was posted in the Moda Bake Shop. It is a great pattern that uses a charm pack plus a couple of FQ's. It results in a sweet little baby quilt. My grandniece is expecting a baby and this may go to her---or I may donate it. The real purpose is to practice with the CL on something that will result in a useful item, not a throw away.

I had a hard time photographing the circles since my quilting "studio" has LOTS of natural light---so I had to close the blinds and make it darker, but I think you get the idea. I did make a mistake (didn't lock the CL before making the circles), but I was able to frog it fairly easy (I went too fast and so the stitches were big----good for me). I am loving this tool!!!!

BTW---ignore the apparent clutter in the picture. I really am not preparing for a segment of Hoarders----things are neater than they look :c)!

Happy day to all. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

  1. I am loving your new toy! The circles are great -- don't see any boo-boos at all. Need some practice pieces??!! :-) I pulled a bunch of tops out of the spare closet this morning to see which ones have backs to them. Also was trying to locate the cheater clothes that I knew were in there -- found them at the bottom! LOL Keep going girl!!
