Little Quilt swap

This year I finally participated in Lori's of Humble Quilts blog,  Little Quilt swap  I've been meaning to join in previous years but had always missed the sign up deadline :(

So here is the lovely little quilt I received from Christy, all the way from the USA, isn't it adorable?Thank you Christy & also a big thanks to Lori for organizing this great swap :)

 You can view all the gorgeous little quilts made & swapped at Lori's linky party here

.....and here is the small quilt I made & sent off to Mary

 Whilst I had all the repro scraps out & was in the mood, I also knocked out a few more small quilt tops, some of them just to use up little orphan blocks I had lying around.

Just need to crack on & get these hand quilted next!

Circle progress

Well...... I have fallen way behind in making may daily circles as too many other projects are distracting me.
I'm still trying to avoid as little waste as possible by using the circle cut outs to make more circle blocks as in the next 2 below
 So to date I have 86 units/blocks or if you count the number of individual circles appliqued 138.............I think I'll stick with the latter number, it certainly sounds better :)
I'm also joining the blocks as I go & here they are all together so far, this isn't the final layout as it looks a bit messy, still needs a bit of tweaking as more blocks are added.
Whilst on the subject of circles, here's my 1st attempt at a Georgetown circle block by EPP. This is going to be the centre of a medallion quilt one day, when I get round to it!
Do go & visit Audrey's 365 circle link up, lots of lovely circles being stitched, grab a cuppa & enjoy all the lovely projects being shared
