I started my Quilty 365 circles on November 8 so I finished up my 58th circle this morning. I must admit I thought I might have overindulged on my Internet sew-a-longs and that I would be calling this “Guilty 365” by now. But, I have surprised myself and in fact, it seems to be at the moment, the only thing I am keeping up with.
I have decided the quilt will be 20 rows of 18 blocks each. Yes, you clever math people, that adds up to only 360, so I will have to applique a smaller circle onto the center of 5 blocks. Oh well, it adds to the excitement. I’ve also decided to piece the strips as I go so that all I will have to do next November is piece the 20 rows together and voila! a quilt is born.
So, I have 3 rows pieced already (I feel so efficient!). I am winding them on to paper towel rolls as I piece them. It saves space and ironing in the end.
I think I’ve been able to keep up because I prep a week’s worth on Sunday and that way I can put in some relaxing applique each morning before heading out for the day.
