December Quilty365 blocks

Happy New Year !!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year - I loved having my first Tassie Christmas in quite a few years :)

I've been seeing a lot of round up for 2017 and planning for 2018 posts around the internet and while I haven't thought about doing those posts yet, I am happy that I'm only two days late in posting the final linky in this year's Quilty 365 !!

I've thoroughly enjoyed hosting this linky through 2017 - although we didn't have too many starters its been fun having LJ and Jann consistently linking up with me - thanks lovelies :)

I was hoping to take the photos of the blocks at the beach or maybe just outside but whenever I think about taking photos it seems to be windy or overcast or both !!

I just put my design wall up this week (after two months) which must mean its time for some sewing around here :)

so onto the December blocks...

a mixture of bright happy summer blocks with the always included animal menagerie !!

this Art Gallery Fabric by Jenni Baker is one of my all time favourite fabrics - its just the perfect shade of happy yellow and those little flowers are adorable - just right for the first day of summer !!

some more "celebrate summer" blocks - if I was five years old again this sweet little summer dress would be my favourite :)

this sweet apple fabric is to celebrate my Dad's birthday on 23 December - he was born in Tasmania too so the apple theme is perfect :)

It was very hard only choosing 3 christmas fabrics - I have quite a few cute christmas fabrics - mostly from Cotton and Steel who are fast becoming my favourite fabric company !

of course there is the usual animal collection - I'm actually amazed at how much animal fabric I own !!

and these two blocks I thought were perfect for the year end - fireworks and bubbles from the champagne :)

so that's it - all the blocks chosen for each day of 2017 - I've enjoyed picking out every fabric and now I just have to sew them all - I'm hoping to have this top together by the middle of this year - I still need to decide if I want to lay them out in the months they were picked or just muddle them up and sew them together where they land - aaaah decisions, decisions !!

Thanks for following along (and linking up) on this year long journey with me and a special thanks to Audrey of Quilty Folk for letting me take over this fun project in 2017 :)

  1. Happy new year of 2018. Congratulations on your success with this challenge. I know the feeling of accomplishment will stay with you - it certainly has with me. Your circles are so darn cute this month. Yep, the little girl's dress is absolutely my favorite - it may be my most favorite. I hope that you'll continue to share your progress with the challenge quilt; I'd love to know exactly how you decide to finish it. My circles are still in limbo and all I've done is 'think about' them! lol My last month's circles are still on my design wall and that was August '17. I've nearly finished a lunch sack I'm making for my 6 year old granddaughter's birthday. When I finish I may just send you a picture to give you an idea of what it's like.

  2. Happy New Year! What a lovely collection of circles to round out the year. They are all just so pretty! I have my circles on hold, but I do intend to finish all 365 at some point!
