Design Wall / BOM's Away Monday

My newest version of Zoe in red/blue black/white colors of the Punctuation's now ready to quilt! I was excited to use my new circle cutting tool from Olfa, received as a result of making it into Round 1 of the McCall's Quilt Design Star 2011 contest last year. This would be a great tool to make all kinds of circles. Accommodating for seam allowances as appropriate by placing the pivot point accordingly, it worked well to cut circles, half circles and quarter circles for my Zoe pattern. This pattern is purchasable at Craftsy.

Added another block --the eagle block to my 'Oddie's Wild Nature' quilt.

Check out my post on what I learned from Irena Bluhm last week! Here is what I'm working on with colored pencils.
