Quilty 365 March Progress

My Quilty 365 circles for March are complete and now total 144 little circles!  Without further ado, here's the March lineup:
March was a month of beginnings - the first day of spring, beginning to clean out part of the abundance of scraps littering corners of the sewing room, donating said scraps to our church's new quilt ministry, and spending several days working to get our ministry off the ground and running.  It's been a busy and rewarding month!

During the course of sorting fabrics for donation several small pieces found their way into Quilty 365 circles.

Pussy willows and butterflies - Spring!

In memory of Griffen, my husband's favorite cat

Some vintage old West fabrics from a yard sale scrap bag

Debbie of Stitchin' Therapy gifted me with these two pieces recently when she came to the rescue with some dark blue tone-on-tone fabric I needed to finish up the Oregon Memories top.   These became my 'first day of spring' and Easter Day blocks.  Thanks Debbie!


And last, but not least, while sorting through several more bins of scraps, I found two more little pieces of that sweet bird fabric from my son and DIL's wedding quilt.  No more cardinals unfortunately, but these two hint at the future occupants of the nest-building activity on the little ledge atop the post on our front porch.
After nearly five months of stitching these circles, I'm still enjoying that (almost) daily time of relaxing hand stitching.   And if you read this blog often you'll know these aren't the only circles being stitched around here in the past couple months.   You can see the finished Oregon Memories quilt top in my previous post here.

Linking up with Audrey at Quilty Folk where you can see an abundance of creative quilters circling around!   Happy Friday!
