May Circles for Quilty 365

I got a little behind on my Quilty 365 circles during the month of May, but caught up at the tail end.  I had a couple other projects going on for the Crafted Applique blog hop (see yesterday's post—there's still time to enter the giveaway!).

The color theme I chose for the month was blue-green or green-blue, as in everything from aqua to turquoise to teal.  It's one of my favorite color ranges.  There's just something tranquil and restful but also light and joyful about it.  Gosh, it's more difficult to put into words than I thought!

Anyway, here is the group for the 31 days of May.  That brings my Quilty 365 circle total to 152.

I still don't really know how they're all going to go together in a quilt (or quilts), but that's all right for the time being.  Just going with the flow.


In my handwritten note, my idea for the color of the month in June says "Floral or Light Multi."  Well, that seems sort of wishy-washy now that I'm at this point.  But I'll try to navigate my way through the month of circles with that in mind.  Hopefully, once things get going, it will start to seem like the cohesive theme I must have envisioned when I scribbled it back in January.

This group of circles would make a sweet quilt all by themselves. Your color combinations are so peaceful.

I like your idea of doing a particular colour family per month!

I love these colours too and this is a pretty, pretty set of circles. I like your change of colour each month and think at some point you will look at what you have and know just what to do with them.

These colors and fabrics are so lovely! I think they would make a beautiful quilt even all on their own. Beautiful work Paulette!
As you look through your fabrics, you'll probably feel led in one way or another with your floral or light multi prompt.
