I have some strips from collars, cuffs, and leftovers from other quilts.
And I have some scrap triangles.
And then I have some circles cut from the backs of the appliqued circles on the star blocks. (Sorry about the flash photo due to lack of sunlight in recent days.)
I have this conversation with myself about circles:
Me: I really don't enjoy appliqueing circles.
Myself: Maybe not, but they're ready-made. All you have to do is stitch them down.
Me: The stitching down is the part I don't like about circles. I could cut them into squares and then I could sew them on the machine.
Myself: But that would be a waste of fabric and you really don't like to waste fabric. You should just use the circles. See, here's what they would look like. You could put the big ones in the corners between these blocks....
I haven't convinced myself, so we continue to play.
I think I like the lighter cross bars: less contrast and I suppose I'm thinking of spring.
I just noticed that Barbara Brackman published a post about circles today, too: Too Dots, Two Moons. Maybe I'll consider the layout in that post.
On the other hand, I'm sure there are plenty of other ways I could use these scrappy leftovers.
