Last Call for Quilty 365 Circles

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!

Aw C'mon. Don't you want to make it 18x20 which is 360? Just make 22 more blocks.

Just Kidding. All good things come to an end. Love your holiday theme for December.

It will be interesting to see how everyone sets their blocks into quilt top form. Your circles and their varied backgrounds are so interesting, they will make a fabulous I-Spy quilt.
