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 !
