February circles are finally completed!  And I'm caught up with March also.  If you are not familiar with the circle project, it's called Quilty 365 and started November 2015.  Leanne from Daisy and Jack Handmade  is continuing on this year.  The idea is to choose a piece of fabric every day of the year and make a 4.5" block.  At the end of your year, the assembled blocks will provide a fabric diary.

I'm finding that my scraps, which I thought I had so much of, aren't suitable in many ways...too small, too ugly, just don't fit my mood or whatever.  I really hate to cut into fat quarters so I'm breaking into charm packs.  I'm also finding leftover blocks and pieces from quilts I've made.  In the top row, #3 and the last one in the third row down are from the quilt I did for the Iron Quilter at Missouri Star Quilt Company.  That was 2013.  The first one in the second row from the bottom is from my heart quilt designed by Kathy Doughty. Right under it is a failed paper piecing for the Splendid Sampler. So this has really turned into a diary.
Linking with Oh Scrap! and Em's scrapbag


  1. Great idea to use block leftovers. Your circles look great!

  2. I am just about finished my 365 daily circles and really enjoyed the challenge. I found it quite addictive. Good luck with yours and I look forward to seeing your progress.

  3. Your "unique" circles are fun -- what a good idea!

  4. I like that you are adding in the pieced circles. I once heard if you think a fabric is ugly you just haven't cut it small enough yet. hee hee!

  5. it will be so fun to have a fabric diary to look back on !!
