Quilty 365 - March Linkup

February has flown by, and 29 circles have been added to my Quilty 365 project box, which is rapidly filling up, with a total of 113 blocks completed!
I'd best start mopping the floors more frequently, gonna need another box before long!

February's mix.
February Quilty 365 circles

I mentioned in an earlier post how circles have taken over my quilty life.  I stitched a few circle blocks to add to my husband's Oregon Memories quilt top, then turned my attention to making a few small friendship star blocks to add to the mix.   Then on Saturday my husband wandered into the sewing room, took one look at the design wall and nixed the idea of the little star blocks.  He wants more circle blocks for the rest of the alternate blocks!   Um, OK, we can do circles!  So, as of last night, in addition to my Quilty 365 circles, I've hand stitched 15 circles of varying sizes for his quilt.

Time to link up with Audrey at Quilty Folk and then see what everyone else has been up to.

And, thought I'd begin March with a note of springtime hopefulness.  The last piece of this fabric, from my son and DIL's wedding quilt made 15 years ago!

  1. Oh, wow.....I want that cardinal! Your husband has a good design eye.....I absolutely love the circle addition to his memory quilt. Can't wait to see more of it. There must be something to these circles and how they affect our other projects. Magic circles, maybe.

  3. From the looks of our "peek", those circles blend well into the Memories quilt--a nice juxtaposition of curves into the many lines and corners of the other blocks.
    That last bit of fabric made a great block for your circle quilt!

  15. I was just thinking today how I needed to find a container for my circles pretty soon. I like your solution. Your circles are gorgeous, and I really like your background fabrics as well! The birdie is so sweet. Gotta love that your hubby felt so strongly about more circles for his quilt!
