quilty365


Audrey over at Quilty Folk started a Quilty 365 project in November 2015 - she started making circle blocks with a 4 1/2 inch square background with the aim of making one block a day for a year - picking fabrics that feel right each day !

As others wanted to join in this project Audrey started a monthly linky party for everyone to link up their monthly blocks.


I only happened upon this project at the end of last year when I was doing the 100 days 100 blocks sew along so I put it on my list for this year !

Audrey is now at the end of her project and she put out a call for someone to take over the linky party and as I've just started my Quilty365 project I thought it would be fun to host the monthly block link up - I figure it will keep me on track as well !! I know there are a few other people who are making these blocks or have just started so I thought it would be fun to continue Audrey's project !


I'm making my circles more like squircles and I started on the last day of 2016 so I have 10 blocks in various stages so far and I'm still to pick today's scrap !  I'm also keeping a little diary of why I picked each fabric - I'll see how long that lasts but I thought it would be fun to look through at the end.  I'm writing each block number on the back of my blocks too and I'll line them up chronologically for the linky party although who knows how I'll lay them out at the very end.

If you want to join in with the fun, check out all the info about the blocks over at Audrey's blog  and come back here on 1 February for the first link-up of 2017 - you can also grab the Quilty 365 blog button on my sidebar !


If you want to see all the amazing circle quilts that were done last year - check out the December 2016 link-ups here and January 2017 link-ups here and if you're on Instagram, check out the #quilty365 hashtag !  My friend Smazoochie has made a mostly polka dot circle quilt that is fabulous and Maryse has made her circles with a red background that looks so amazing !!

Please leave a comment or drop me a line if you need any further info too :)

  3. This is neat but I can't take on any more LOL
    I clicked over thinking it was just something 365, but see it's a specific something.
    My 365 this year is to make 3 yo-yo's every day.

  5. O great that you give it a new place. I startet November 15 and finished my circles but not my quilt. Perhaps on February? I'll come back.

  6. Thank you. I'm really pleased that you picked up the ball and are running for a touchdown. :) I didn't start my challenge until September and things went well until November when I was pushing to get my Christmas decorating and projects finished!! I hate to admit it but 365 got put on the back burner and I am now behind by 2 months. Yikes, I've been playing 'catch up' and I can see that it will take me awhile. I am trying to stay on track since Jan 1; hopefully, I can sustain the effort. Thanks again for stepping up to take the ball.

  13. Thank you for being the linky host. I started my blog on 30th December, last year, which was a tad late to join in last year's SAL. lol There's a tub in my sewing room with a ton of scraps which need pressing. This is the perfect motivation to get them pressed and ready to go. Looking forward to starting.
