    365 Challenge-inspired

    In 2016, an Australian quilter started a 365 block-a-day challenge, and I followed along for a while, using blue and green scraps. Somewhere along the line, I got diverted and wanted to finish. So here's what I came up with.

    I like it......I assume it is not the original concept but where you chose to wrap it up.....

    It is very lovely. The colors are relaxing.

    That's a very pretty quilt. I don't know what you are missing, but what you have really works in the setting you chose.

    Very nice quilt! I enjoy a challenge like that--making it work but not as intended.

    Really lovely quilt - I especially like the top center star with the soft greys/black/orange and could see that as a color scheme for an entire quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It's a beautiful quilt. Someone in one of my quilt clubs did the challenge in all neutral colors. She did all the 3" blocks.
