It feels strange to not have a mini quilt to post on this final day of January. So, my mini circle a day blocks will have to do. After searching my tin inventory, I decided on this Roy Rogers reproduction tin.
When each month is finished, they will reside in this old shoe box. (yes, I save all boxes, it is in my DNA).
After I applique them down I press them "flat" and trim each block to exactly 3". I made this special trimming ruler by taking an old worn out 6" favorite and taping the circle to the back as a guide.
