Circles: ready to quilt

I have my first finished quilt top of 2013 - Pac Mania

This was such an easy pattern, even with the curves and actually went together very quickly,even though I spread mine out over 6 months... The fabric is a jelly roll of Ruby from Bonnie and Camille and Kona Snow and the pattern is from Jelly Roll Dreams by Pam and Nicky Lintott.

It's now basted and ready to quilt - and not actually as wrinkly as it looks in these photos. I decided not to add the borders in the original pattern, but instead use the leftover jelly roll for a scrappy binding.  Unless anyone has a better suggestion, my plan is to stipple in all of the background, then I'll bind it, and see how it looks. If it needs it, I may to some echo quilting by hand in red perle cotton.

And I got my bee blocks for January Stash Bee done

Cecillia asked for greys and yellows with Kona Coal - it was buying some for this project that inspired me to use it for the Skill Builder BOM - thanks, Cecillia
