Tangerine Tango Quilt Finished

I had the idea for the circle blocks in my head but wasn't completely sure how I was going to construct them, so I did the only right thing...procrastinated!   When I finally did them, they weren't that difficult.  I took the snowball quilt pattern and divided it up and made paper piecing patterns.  The center where all the seams came together I clipped a small circle to get rid of some of the bulk and then appliqued a small circle over the hole.  The rest was all put together improv.  Just started adding fabric. The quilting is also improv.  I did all the sections differently.  Lots of freedom...lots of fun...it needs a name.  Fishsticks?

Tangerine Tango

If I hadn't taken this challenge, I wouldn't have pushed myself to figure out these circles.  Love the way they came out.  These have to become part of a finished quilt by March 1 to be entered in the challenge. pressure...pressure..I can do it!
