You Spin Me Right Round

You Spin Me Right Round Baby, Right Round...

:hum along if you will:

Or, at least, Kelly of Jeliquilts, who is our Miss July in our FQR Kinky Bee, is spinning me round with her circle block request for this month.

FQR Kinky Bee

Like a Record Baby, Right Round, Round, Round...


Okay, okay, I will stop singing now, I promise!

Here is Kelly's inspiration mosaic:

and her own circle block 1 - the one with the scarily perfect circles and magnificent fabric choices as one would expect from Her Royal July-ishness!

Trash, another member of our Bestest Bee in the World ;0P, posted to say that even though the parcels only arrived 5 minutes ago, she has already finished hers...

So, I thought I should get a bit more practice in before I cut into Kelly's fabrics.

Armed with my best white thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yup, I've actually ripped off the celophane from the Aurifil now!!!!!!!!!!! I added some circles to these pinwheel blocks {which my old Mumsie wants as a table runner but was complaining that they were too white and too plain beforehand}.

This attempt is raw edge applique, using BondaWeb and the gorgeous machine blanket stitch {that I actually upgraded and bought my posh machine for!}.  I think I like how this looks much more than my first attempts the other day.  Its got a more modern feel to it, I think.
