It's time once again to party with the Quilty 365 quilt along. I'm linking up with my first month's worth of circles. Thirty-one days' worth of blues.
I decided to do one color a month for my circles. It was really fun to poke through the stash and scraps to find blue fabrics that caught my fancy.
Admittedly, I didn't make just one circle a day. I did several at a time when the mood struck, and that turned out to be a good way of working for me.
A couple of my favorites from the month were the fussy cut house block...
And the bluebird.
But honestly, I like each and every one of them. There is part of a repurposed '80s dress my sister gave me, a thrifted shirt or two, fabric from friends, and others with their own special story.
February's colors will be red and pink. I haven't made one yet today so I better get busy.
Pop over to Audrey's blog, Quilty Folk, to explore the links. It's fascinating to see the creative variations on the Quilty 365 theme.
Of course, when I think of the blues, I think of some great music. I recently saw the band Lake Street Dive on Stephen Colbert's late night show. Here's an earlier bluesy song by their amazing lead singer, Rachael Price. Ooh, I'm telling you, that girl can sing!
