First month of Quilty 365

 I am on day 32 of the Quilty 365 project, after beginning on December 1.......


and I am a few short!  I missed a few days during the holidays that I will try to catch up on.  Today I added the end piece second row of orange dots on light purple.....to remember Clemson's win last night at the Orange Bowl.  Lol....I thought they would get stomped on.   


   My circles are machine stitched.  I am using a fusible interfacing technique to stitch the circle first.  It is the same technique I used on the orange peels...click here for that post.   The square fabric is cut away beneath the circle after being stitched down.  

    I am also making a few 1/2 circles to end every other row.....I wanted a staggered layout for interest.    Of course, a plain piece would work too.
I am enjoying this project a lot.  I get to dig in the scrap bins, look for pieces I have saved, hunt up some different backgrounds, and play around with color combinations.  Soon I am going to have to pull fabrics from the stash closet for large enough pieces.....no complaints about that.  It will be like shopping :)

  I noticed lots of variations, and sizes at the link up party.  Check it out here at Quiltyfolk blog.   It's not too late to start!  Happy stitching.

  1. Love your half circle idea - I've been planning a staggered layout, but with plain pieces at the ends.

  2. What a great idea to stagger the circles and use half circles at the ends! I have no idea how I'll do my layout yet, but this is wonderful.:)

  7. Your circles have such a soft and peaceful effect. That "flapper" girl circle is too cool! Love that cabin block too.

  11. Well, I love what you're doing with this. The little house is a great addition. I dearly want to get involved with this project, but I'm having a hard time deciding to start yet another project when some of mine are so many years in the works. Definitely keeping this one in my future, however, for when the time is right.

  14. I love your fabrics. Great collection: aloha shirt, grandma's house, coffee, flapper... Such fun. Half circles are clever, too. It's so interesting to see how everyone tackles this project.
