It's been a slow week all round

...and looks like next week will be too, but I am happy to say that I am completely up-to-date with my circles. I thought I was there a couple of days ago but then realise that I hadn't done any for the week I was currently in, but I pulled my socks up and here they all are.  Of course I need to do one for today, but that should be a piece of cake (!) There will be 16 more little blocks, to get me up to my 365 completion date of November 16th, but I won't make any more after that; I'll just see what I've got and go from there.


I've done a wee bit more hand quilting too, and am aiming to make some progress today.  A couple of people mentioned the thread I am using, so here's a gratuitous shot - all of these are in with a chance of making it into the quilt as I'm just picking up what seems like a nice match each time I start a section. Sulky 12wt Blendables, one and all.

  2. I adore variegated threads in a quilt. I used to think that the whole quilt had to be only one color thread, but now I know better. Can't wait to see your stitching.

  3. I haven't tried varigated threads yet. A must in my near future! Good for you making it thru the year with your circles. Looking forward to the quilt they will become.

  5. My favourite variegated threads - and boy have you got some nice shades there! I'm so pleased you managed to keep your circles going all year, truly dedicated. And I bet you'll come up with some gorgeous quilts with them too.

  10. Aren't you proud of making it to the end? You deserve a wee bit of pride for catching up and going all the way to 365. Now the fun begins--playing and stitching. Love that gratuitous shot of those lovely threads.

  11. Doesn't it feel good to be caught up? I'm almost caught up with my circles too. I started them on Nov 4 so I'm pretty close to a year. I can't wait to see everyone's circle quilts after one year! I like your circles. I have some revere applique on my "to do" list.
