Quilty 365 Finish

Okay, so I didn't do 365 circles but I did sew little circles for over 6 months!




I finally got this one all quilted up and bound.  It has been a bit warm still in the evenings so the hand sewing took longer than usual.



 It is certainly filled with a lot of fun fabric scraps.  A big thanks to QuiltyFolk for thinking up this idea.  And kudos to all those who are still making daily squares!
This will be the last month I will be linking up.



I decided to donate this one to a kids' charity so I used some bright novelty fabric on the back.



 I wanted this quilt to be very durable so I quilted the entire top with all different sizes of squared spirals.  I quilted right over the applique and did all the quilting in a navy colored thread.

Finishing this quilt was my July OMG goal with Red Letter Quilts.  It is the last Friday of the month so I am just squeaking by!

Wow, the circles are beautiful. I am still working on mastering straight pieces, circles are way off in my future.

I'm just finishing up my first year of quilting and have decided it is time for a new machine, (the 1978 Kenmore is ready to retire). Can you tell me what is your go to machine?

It's a great setting and a happy quilt. I love that you quilted over the applique' so that it would last in the hands of a child. Yay!

Putting together 365 circles is quite a commitment; I love how you finished your quilt and some child will certainly enjoy your work.

So bright and cheerful. Love the fussy cut owl and penguin. Wish I could see them up close. It is a colorful piece of scrappy gorgeousness.

This is really neat use of the circles! Love the scrappy fabrics together, and the interplay between the angular fields and rounds. Somebody's really going to love getting it. :) Thanks for linking at TGIFF.

Right from the start you have worked those circles in you own unique way and it looks complete now. It will make a sweet I Spy quilt for some lucky child. Congrats on your very successful finish. BTW, my post is acting weird, just hit the Home button and it will show up.

Congrats! on your finish. I absolutely LOVE it. You are a more generous soul than I am, for I would surely HAVE to keep it!!

Kathy said...

Looks great!! Love the square spiral quilting. Just curious, did you do that with a walking foot or FMQ? That's a lot of spirals!

Lara B. said...

What a fun looking quilt Cyndy and your spiraled squares just make it even more so! You are going to delight the child who receives it!

Vic in NH said...

Super finish and I love that you made those large HST's to fill the space with scrappy fun surrounded by the circles! Kudos to you!

Jo said...

Love how you have quilted it. Great finish too.

Cathy said...

That turned out really cute. I like how you quilted it and how it shows up in the applique circles.

Mine is a six-month project as well - and ready for quilting. I really really like the idea of the spiraled squares but as a new sit down FMQ person, I have a couple of questions about how you did the quilting. Stand up or sit down? Marked, stencil, panto, or FM? Thanks!
