Circles moving forward

It feels like time to get these circles moving.  I'm still basting and sewing the individual units but want to get more of a feel for how they are going to go together.  

I have sewn together this chunk.


I liked the way the lettered strips looked en masse in the photos I took, so, although I originally envisaged using them singly,  I'm now  going to layer them up deliberately, just as long as it fits with the circle blocks.  I don't intend to go causing myself too many problems fitting this all together.


Now I''m laying out options for the next bit.  I like the third row better here than with the offset circle, and the purple strip down the left hand side may get a friend or two, but nothing more has been stitched so I can keep on tinkering for a bit.


I'm going to link up today with Em's Scrapbag for Moving it Forward Monday.

  16. So creative. A simple concept- the circle repeated 365 times- can go so many directions.
