wiped three off my wip list today

did you ever look  at a pattern and think to yourself i can make this easier or faster if i change make it bigger or smaller well that was the case with the going in circles i made it bigger circles and used a different method to add the prints i think it took twice as long oh and i decided i would quilt inside each one but without further boring you here it is its raining so i couldnt take it outside to photograph
i also made a small table topper using the pattern instructions went together fast
i have extra left over and i think a pillow or two using the instructed method

here is a pic of my cat already on the quilt
it is twice this size i just used a 2 in border

this is how i sewed the border on since it thundered loud with a pup on my lap
started sewing hst for hubble already had it cut out and the owl quilt for eloise

any opinion please! help

here is the completed top well almost
i cant decide on a border or not i have all these extra blocks  (see below ) each strip tube made 6 blocks i used 4 to make the large block  18 in. the top so far is 7 by 6 and i need controlled scrappy i guess
 i have to use 3 jelly rolls and i have leftover strips too ill make a 2 in white border from leftover jelly roll and save the print but i cant decide if i want to use the other blocks later or sew them together for an outer border whatch think ?

this is the reason i havent been quilting i >>> neeeed!!!to finish this i have one more border to quilt and off to going in circkle id like to finish it by next weeki made this 2 yrs ago
this is my next quilt hubble im using salt air

and below is remember whoo love you quilt pattern this will be for miss eloise
