Time to link up with Audrey’s Quilty 365. I don't have a design wall so I could only get a few rows in at a time.
I began my journey on November 8 and with the exception of Thanksgiving Day, I have appliqued a circle a day since then. I have found this to be my total relaxation project. I am making mine out of vintage feedsack fabrics and so far I have not duplicated one fabric (I think). I usually prep a week’s worth on Sunday but if I fall behind, I just prep a few more. There will be 20 rows of 18 blocks each, plus a 4 12" border with corner blocks and I will add another circle in there somewhere to make it add up to 365. I realized yesterday, that I have a dilemma. Because of leap year, do I stop on November 7 with my 365 blocks as planned or make one more and call it Quilty 366? I think I will cross that bridge in November!
Because of the nature of feedsacks, the light fabrics tend to show through to the background if you don’t cut out the back. However…. Yup, once in a while you get a little overzealous and joila! a tiny slice appears. Easily fixable!
Please check out Audrey’s link up. There are some fantastic stitchers and stories to go along with them. I love to see all the different approaches to this sew-a-long. Thanks again Audrey!
