Today's dilemma

Today's dilemma is:  Shall I make a quilt, or sort the garage?  A no brainer, really.

I needed some fast inspiration for a quilt I could make easily with my 6 metres of fabric from yesterday's post.  I found it on Amy Butler's website  and chose the "Belle" quilt design - circles inside squares, one of my favourites.

Here's what it looks like in her fabrics:



Way, way too busy for my liking, and the fabrics don't really go together well.  However, here's what my circle blocks look like:



I like the way these are looking.

I love this. It's very earthy and has a lovely feel to it.
