Circle Quilt!

I first saw this circle quilt on one of the blogs I read.  It was adorable and looked pretty easy to make, so I decided to give it a try.  I bought a Tula Pink Nest charm pack and cut all of the squares into circles using a sundae dish.  The brown fabric is a bed sheet left over from my Figgy Pudding Quilt, and I bought a couple yards of my favorite Nest patterns for the borders and backing.  This quilt came together very quickly, but still presented challenges.  For the first time in a while, I wanted to machine quilt the entire quilt. I stopped machine quilting because I was never happy with the results; puckers, shifting etc.  I had to rip out a few seams and redo parts of this quilt, but I think I know what I need to do next time to improve.

I will post pictures of the back as soon as my photography helper gets home!
