Report on those circles

  The end of February is day 91!  Even more surprising is I am current and caught up.    There was a mixed bunch of circles for this month...from buttons to Betty Boop!   I really like the no pressure--haha!--of only doing a circle each day.
    So before I show you the mixed mass of squares, here are my reasons and things I have realized from this sew along.

  • It is easy to catch up if I miss a day......or not, it is my choice. 
  • Interesting subject matters to portray add to the fun factor....a little off beat or quirky fabric adds personality.
  • Finding pleasing combinations of background fabric for the circles gives me reason to search around in the stash....to find some hidden treasure.  
  •  Thread play....contrast or matching....I have lots to choose from and use up!
  • I like mixing in fabrics I love, finding fabrics that evoke a memory, or throwing in a fabric that just needs a home.
  • Finally, no one has to like this one, but me!
So here are this month's circles.

A lot more floral fabrics this month, and some geometric patterns, as well as tone on tone patterns.  

To celebrate Day 91......I decided to throw the entire batch up on the design wall.

  There is no rhyme or reason to the arrangement.  I just wanted to see them together.  I was afraid I had too many of the dark backgrounds in my mess.....but I really like them as they add a big visual interest at first glance.  This is going to provide hours of design play time at the end......if I get there :)  I really think I will end up with 2 smaller quilts....one will just be floral fabrics probably.  

Are you making circles?  Details on Quilty 365 at Quilty Folk blog.  
Happy stitching.

  1. How fun to see them all together - love the mix. I had some of that button fabric - just used the last bit up in those brown 9-patches. And I see some other bits that are in my barrels - how cool.

  4. I like the mix in the circles and background fabrics, the fussy cut circles really pop out. It will be interesting to see the finish or finishes you come up with.
