March Quilty 365

My 31 days of circles for March!  The last two on the bottom row are for St. Patrick's day.  Above them, two days of monkeys.  I think they came from a bundle I bought on eBay several years ago.  I have mushrooms, flowers, bees and people walking in the rain for's coming slowly to my corner of the world.  You can see some color variations in the backgrounds.  I'm doing all my backgrounds in pale yellow...some paler than others.  At the end, I hope to have a nice scrappy look to it.

The 31st day is represented by my mini quilt for Jen & Jan's Laundry Day Mini Quilt Blog Hop.  My reveal day was March 11 and this is my quilt.

I'm currently planning on using this as a center for my completed circle quilt.  I quilted through the batting and then added the backing, which is held on by the binding. I just need to unpick the back if the binding, iron and it turns into sashing.  You can read more about this mini quilt  here.  There are still nine months to go so I may change my mind!

  1. What fun circles and great fabric! Loved seeing and reading about your journey. Congrats on being 'caught up'. It's much more difficult to stay caught up than I expected when I started the challenge. I don't have a blog but I'll be posting my circles using Flickr. BTW, I rather liked the little pink peeking out between the squares. I know you were just taking pictures but it might be a neat look to have sashing that color. Laundry Day is wonderful!

  2. Circles are a challenge, and yours look great!
