Pixelated Circle HOOP QUILT

HOOP QUILTS are addicting in the best way.  It's a short and sweet version of a quilt.  I get all the highs of a finish, in a quarter (or less) of the time.  And a bit more unique than a mini.  Here's the latest.... this beaut was made with all the fixin's from this month's Alison Glass Quilty Box.
I altered the inside of the HOOP QUILT to be a Pixelated Circle block. Check out Jessee's pattern - she offers this block in 5 different sizes to make a complete quilt.

Added some appliqué feather cutouts using Nichole's Boho Embroidery as inspiration.
Next comes the crazy part.  I wondered if it was absolutely nuts to chop up the 10" square set to make bias binding for wrapping the HOOP.  It wasn't as hard as I thought..... and it's TOTALLY worth it when you look at that rainbow binding!

I need to work on my embroidery skills, especially if I'm planning a ton of these hoops.  I added some big stitching around the circle.  Then tried a few asterisks and french knots near the feathers.  This was my first time working with Aurifloss (also came in the Quilty Box).  Suuuuuper nice!  Kinda want to collect those wooden spools too.

And there she is..  LOVE how this came out!

What favorite fabrics should I turn into an awesome HOOP QUILT next?
