    This was 2016

    Last year I joined a challenge which I found while doing some blog hopping called 365 daily circles and I have been working on it for the past 12 months. Finally the last stitch was put in today. Every circle represents something that I did or something that happened on each day and I would like to share my year with you.

    That sounds like a very challenging plan. I'd love to see some close ups.

    I can't imagine doing this! However, yours looks wonderful and I also would love to see some of the circles up close. Are the designs appliqued to the circles? Are the circles appliqued to the quilt? That was a real challenging challenge!

    What a unique idea! Sounds like a big challenge. Please show close-ups. I can't imagine so many different things in my day-to-day life to express in fabric so I'd love to see yours.

    Effectively a visual diary of your year. Very nice. Any close-ups?

    This is wonderful! I too would love to see some close ups and maybe you can feature a block or two and tell us what happened that you chose that fabric. And do please share a few more details about it like the size of the circles and squares and what method you chose for applique (fused or turned, hand or machine, or is this reverse applique etc). so far, it seems the responses are very curious about your beautiful quilt and I have to agree what a neat block a day challenge.

    I love circle quilts like this! I have made one so far but the blocks were larger so I only had to put together 110. But my DH loved it so much he asked me to create a second one so I think I have enough circles appliqued to squares, I just have to get it laid out and sewn together. Here is a link to mine if you would like to look:

    That was a unique idea, and how much fun it will be to review the year--years from now. I did that in diary form, including the foods we ate when we were fortunate to travel to Europe and today it calls up such fond memories.

    never saw one like this, very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
