I have a set of nesting biscuit cutters that worked really well for the different sized circles. Five out of the seven yo-yos are from the biscuit cutter set. I had to find a couple of bowls to make the larger circles because I wanted my tree to be a little taller. It was really easy, quick and fun to make.

This is the quilt that I made in order to be able to have something quilted in the King Tut De Nile thread. I saw the thread at the quilt shop and told the owner that I really wanted to make something that color so that I could have it quilted in that thread.
When I saw this fabric I knew it would work. The fabric is from the Christine line from Benartex by Eleanor Burns. The top is mostly two charm packs with some yardage for the border and for a couple of 5 inch squares to make the diagonal rows work out right.
The quilting design is Ribbons and Roses and the quilt finished 45 x 55 inches. I don't know what I will do with it, but I think it turned out really nice. Below is a closeup of the label.
