While I am waiting for the purchased fabric to arrive, I decided to do a few other things to get ready for the next stage in this quilt.
I had finally finished preparing all of the circles and stacked them up ready for use……
I love how the colors pop, even though I can only see the turned under edges!!
The next step was to trim the “squiggle” down so that I can attach it to the background using bias tape. I started to trim right on the line, but instead decided to leave about 1/8th of an inch on the edge…..
The next step was to remove the Golden Threads paper that I had used as a base for the piecing……..
It is hard to believe that it has taken this much time to do work that will fit in a few zip lock bags!!!
One of my friends, Janelle, has been reading this blog and found a fabric that she thought might encourage and inspire me and she sweetly brought it to the latest guild meeting……
It really does give me some ideas about how to fill the corners of the quilt…..isn’t that what quilting friends are for!!!!!

OOOH! Those stacks of circles are so inspiring!!!!
I had a little chuckle at your comment about all that hard work fitting into a few zip lock bags!!
Keep going – it will be worth it!
