It's been a year of making the Quilty 365 circles, and December's batch has brought my grand total to...not 365, but 338.
Close enough for rock 'n' roll, as they say. Enough to make a quilt, anyway, and memorialize the whole shootin' match in quilt form.
You'll note I went with a holiday theme in December. It was interesting
to explore my box of seasonal fabrics for the month's worth of circle
sewing. I also fussy-cut a few pieces of repurposed scrubs as well (see
Rudolph and assorted snowmen, etc.).
As far as how it's going to look when it's put together, I still don't know. I do know that if I set it simply 18 blocks across x 19 blocks down, that'd be 342 blocks and make a quilt about 72 x 76, which seems a decent size. I only have 338 made, but it'd be simple to add another four...or not. Maybe leaving four "empty" blocks would add a little something quirky to the design. I like a little quirky. Thinking out loud here.
So we'll see. I do have some other ideas pinned on a Pinterest board or two, if I can find them (that's a whole 'nother area needing organization). But now that the making of blocks is done, I will enjoy taking my time to explore options for stitching them together. Starting with seeing how my fellow Quilty 365-ers have been doing. Off to hit the links!
