This month's Quilty 365 circles are brought to you by the color orange, or what may pass for orange, anyway. I had to stretch the boundaries a bit to align with the stash, so we have everything from rusty brown to peach, with a twist of gold to boot.
What makes me smile in particular today is the one below, made with one skinny string's worth of skeletons on orange background fabric, plus a stripey narrow string of something else between. Happy Halloween!
Here is the whole month's worth of orange October blocks.
I missed last month's link up because we were on vacation, but here, too, is the August/September lot of yellow and tan circles. I made 33 blocks for those two months combined, plus 31 in October, making the total for this project 277 so far.
Now, I'm kind of stumped on November. In the beginning of the year, I scribbled down color themes for each month, but November was "vintage fabrics?" and December was "holiday fabrics?". Note the question marks. I was moving away from the color theme of the month and into the realm of other possibilities when I jotted down those ideas.
Right now, I'm thinking November may be a free-for-all. I don't have 30 different vintage fabrics, I know that for sure (and besides, I've used a few vintage fabrics in blocks already; see the orange/teal/black scribble block in the October group above, for example). So we'll see what happens.
I also finished the quilt top from the Aspen Frost layer cake. It's ready for pin basting and quilting one of these fine days when I feel like moving the kitchen furniture out of the way and mopping the floor.
And I don't think I've mentioned yet the Friendship Circle I had put together before we left on vacation a month ago. I used the half-square triangles of made-fabric trimmed from the Quilt for Pulse. When this is finished, it'll be wall hanging size. (Also, you won't see the gingham check showing through. That's my design wall covering, the fuzzy back side of a gingham check vinyl tablecloth fabric.)
Did you have many trick-or-treaters at your house? We only had a handful this year. Maybe the fact that trick-or-treat hours yesterday were during the Packer game had something to do with it.
