These are the blocks I'll be working on this year for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP2013). There are more than twelve of them. However, several are smaller than the required six inch size, so those will be done in groupings. I got these pieced this past weekend, while trying to rest my back from some of the moving we accomplished for my daughter. Today, we tackle the kitchen packing...and my back is again already complaining just thinking about it! So, I knew that these blocks needed to be started before I got so behind in my idea execution.
These are the cardboard templates I made to help me mark the circles. I save old cereal boxes to use as the cardboard for templates and such...they are just flattened and I keep a larger storage box under my last shelf in the pantry...and these just tuck in there. 
Also, found some time to finish up the CQJP2012 individual block squares. Here are the last nine of the set of twelve. They all need little ring hangers, and then will be hung individually in the sewing room.

Of course I related to your color choices as I am doing pastels also... anxious to see what you do with circles... Gerry

I never thought circular. How fun! I can't even imagine what you have in mind for them.

I'm leaning toward a tumbling block pattern. But still working from finish to start trying to decide. LOL.

How interesting that you chose graduated circles Kathy...I cannot wait to see how you will bling these out and then put them together...lovely choice of colors.

Oh, I am loving those fabrics! Your quilt is going to be beautiful. I really like your idea for finishing CQJP2012 as individually hung blocks. You will be able to fill the space on your wall any way you like.
