Quilty 365 - February Linkup

It's time to link up again with Audrey's Quilty 365 sew-along.  This little challenge - appliqueing one circle to a square every day - has become very, very addicting.  It's a time I look forward to every day, generally after supper while watching the evening news.  Surprising how a little ritual like this can do so much to calm the mind and bring a few moments of serenity.

My January "calendar" of circles.

A total of 84 circles since beginning this project on November 9

They had pretty much taken over the design wall!  But since the last photo I've taken down the first three months of circles to make room for a couple new piecing projects.  Still have a few setting options I'm mulling over for the final circles but nothing has gelled in my mind just yet.  

A few favorites from January's stitching.

A couple from a "flower series" .. reminding myself that spring will come

You can see what others are creating over at the Quilty 365 Linkup with Audrey at Quilty Folk.  You can even join in the slow-paced action ... there's no official start or ending date, just jump right in if you want to add a little quiet time each day to enjoy this fun quilt-along.
