Oh Scrap! : Quilty 365

Here we are on Easter Sunday and the end of March is coming fast!  I am finding myself not getting into my sewing room for large chunks of time lately but I have been stitching a few minutes every day and keeping up with a few projects.



Here are my Quilty 365 blocks for the four full weeks in March.  I chose some fabrics to document Leap Day, maintenance to my longarm, taxes, a nighttime visit outside my bedroom window by an owl, homemade chili and teaching EPP.  Many of the other fabrics are scraps from projects I worked on during the month.

This last week has been really uneventful and just about work.
Funny, even my block looks a bit boring!



 Here are the first three months or one quarter of my quilt up on the design wall.  It should be a generous queen size when it is finished.

How about you, hope you share what you are working on!



Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 
Quilting is more fun than Housework

Happy Easter! Looks like I have mostly scrap projects lately but today I managed to finish a bag. Now should quilt quilty365 project and begin new. Your circles in square with triangles are beautiful and great idea. x Teje

Happy Easter Cynthia. All the sewing I will be doing today is today's circle for the Quilty 365 project, but I'll be posting about that later in the week. I like your weekly layout; very original.

I love your Quilty 365 blocks and it always makes me smile to see them. I think one of the most fascinating things about this challenge is all the different takes on the project. So many roads!

I always love seeing your Quilty 365 blocks! They have such a neat look to them, and are going to make an amazing quilt! Some weeks I have a hard time picking out fabric for mine, too - just nothing stands out for those particular days. But I think altogether, the whole thing will be pretty neat!

I find your blocks pretty and interesting. A good combination with triangles and circles. I've linked a paper pieced block I made to a pincushion. There I've used the tiniest scraps ever.

Some weeks are certainly duller than others aren't they...good thing is....you blocks are unique and fantastic!

Ruth said...

There might be the odd dull week but this will be a really interesting quilt !

Great way you are formatting your Quilty 365 circles!

Kate said...

Very cool setting for your 365 blocks. Hope you find more time to stitch soon.

Love what you're doing here with the circles in a block. So different.

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

I don't think your blocks are boring.....I really like those circles with the HST. Such an interesting block! Thanks for sharing on MCM!

Susan said...

Your blocks are gorgeous! Love your take on it, by using several circles. This is going to be one awesome quilt!

Eye candy...pure and simple! Both settings are beyond beautiful..but I like the second one better. Either way you can't lose. What a neat idea to combine them into one gorgeous top. You are so inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

I really love how your circles sash the hsts.

Maryse said...

It's looking fantastic, love your version of Quilty365!

audrey said...

Some days are definitely more exciting than others and that's okay! Your version of these circles is a really fun one.:)

Quiltdivajulie said...

I really, really like the layout you've created for your circles ... mixing in the HSTs and the border strips is SO interesting!
