Quilty 365 – December


 Making a Circle Quilt One Day at a Time
Quilty365 Sew Along logo - a daily patchwork quilt along with Quilty Folk.

Quilty 365 sew along month 2 is steaming ahead and I’m feeling as committed and engaged as I was during the first month. As the days go on I find I’m filled with so many ideas for other quilting projects and art work too – if only there were more hours in the day! Audrey’s Quilty365 sew along over at Quilty Folk has truly inspired me.

There are many quilters taking part and if you’re tempted to join in I highly recommend reading a post that Audrey published in January 2015. Authenticity is post 3 in a 3 part series Scrap Building ABCs. Audrey says that authenticity is

“…the part of your quilt that shines forth as genuinely YOU.”

I couldn’t agree more. If you want your Quitly365 quilt (or any quilt that you make) to express something unique about you the Quilty365 sew along is the perfect place to start. Read Audrey’s story about her own journey to authenticity (which she has in bucket loads!), why authenticity is so important and some really great ideas and advice about where to begin.

I hope you’ll find my own contribution to the quilty365 sew along an authentic one too. By the time I have enough blocks to make a quilt, I hope it couldn’t possibly be mistaken for anyone’s quilt but mine!

I’ll regularly update the gallery below as we go through month 2, so pop back to this page now and again to see all my efforts in one place.  Sometimes there might be a few gaps to fill in the chronological order of things. This is due to the fact that generally Cornwall is pretty wet, grey and dank at this time of year and there’s not enough light to do them justice.  As soon as the sun comes out I’ll whip out the camera to catch up!

Don’t forget to head on over to Quilty Folk to see Audrey’s link ups and everyone else’s great contributions to the project!

    These are so beautiful! Each one is like a lovely painting. And it will be thrilling to see how they come together when you finish.

      Thanks Susan 🙂 I do enjoy making them as though each one is a piece in its own right…and then I remember I have to join them all together at some point and my head feels like it’ll explode! Sometimes I have to restrain myself and think ‘you can do that with the quilting, you don’t have to do it all now’! It’s hard when each one’s an individual not to want to finish it entirely.
