Quilty Circles 365 - Day 1

I've been looking forward to starting the Quilty 365 Quilt along with daily circles since it started.  I was good though, and finished off my orange peels first.  I wanted to start on January 1 in any case to make it a true calendar quilt.  Since today is Friday, I picked out some background squares to fill in Monday through Thursday for this week.  I think that I will try to assemble the weeks as I go.  The blue circle is from one extra 3.5 inch square that I had left when I finished piecing the Twinkle Star blocks for my column-along quilt today.  I have a feeling that I lot of my days will be inspired by the colors of the month.
I sat and appliquéd the circle while watching the Rose Bowl football game with Kurt, but the Hawkeyes are not having a such great day.  Maybe it would be best to slip back into the sewing room and get a bit more sewing done instead?

The Rose Bowl?! I must be getting old. I completely forgot about the Tournament of Roses Parade this morning!! Apparently, there is a 1st time for everything. :o((

It's been interesting to see all the different approaches to the Circles 365. Enjoy the process this year.

I love seeing all circles popping up on different blogs. I thought of making the circles blue in January, but found that I would go for two different projects.

Yay! I started yesterday, just to be contrary. 8)
I have a feeling a blue or two will be sneaking into my 365s too, this month!

I started my Quilty 365 today so I can make it a calendar quilt too. Hope I can keep up!

This looks like an auspicious start to the year. I also used fabrics from other recent projects in my first block!

Welcome to a fellow new starter, yay! Love the blue batik (I think?) in your first one.

Wonderful start! Sometimes I long for the quiet of my quilting room but then it's only really quiet when nobody else is home.:)

A great start to your circles!
I got carried away and did many a day, not just one!

I am pleased that others are only just started the 365 Circles - I may not do one per day, we shall see.
The Circle project is an ideal one to combine with the RSC 2016 - now that is a thought, would you mind if I possible followed your example?

Looks like you managed quite a 'bit more' quilting! Nice work.

Ann said...

What a good idea to start with the calendar. (I was afraid I'd never get to it if I didn't start sooner.) This will be a better record of the year.
