Circle Pizzazz Quilt and some other stuff

I took Judy Sisneros' class called Circle Pizzazz two weeks ago through our guild.  Since I borrowed the templates I had to cut and make the quilt so I could give them back.  Everyone was using batiks and patterned fabrics and all kinds of combos.  I was the only one to attempt solid hand-dyes.  I really like how it came out.  My goal was to use "cool" colors in the background and "warm" colors in the circles.

I also decided to do a little, and I mean little, organizing today.  My friend Adena had a 3 tiered rack next to her machine and I liked that so I went to Hobby Lobby today and found this.  I had to move the bulletin board up and while doing that, I cleaned it up a bit.
 Also changed a light switch plate in my dining room.  The old one I had wrapped in textured wallpaper and painted it years ago and it was kind of falling apart and was bugging me for months.
 Then while at Hobby Lobby I found more hooks for my necklaces.  I had the big one in the middle and it was getting hard to get a necklace off of it.
 Thanks for looking.

Love the "organizing" stuff. I am forever looking for storage for under my cutting table! Love the quilt too. Looks awesome in solids.

Ditto what everyone else says.

I bought a new switchplate cover today. I should have gotten something better than white plastic, but it was for the laundry room...
