My first two months of Quilty 365 - I started on December 1st of last year. I am loving how these look up on my design wall!
I decided to make orange peels for my Quilty 365 project, for multiple reasons! I'm not much of a hand stitcher, so didn't think I would be able to keep up with a project that required hand stitching every day. Plus, I had made a mini using orange peels a couple years ago, and wanted to work with these blocks again in another way. I like how these blocks are made - sewn to a fusible interfacing and then fused onto the background. I'll go back and add more stitching when I'm putting the quilt together. My background is the Modern Backgrounds in Paper by Zen Chic.
Some highlights of the month:
Finally getting to see the new Star Wars movie - January 5th. The Star Wars stories are a big part of our family life - we loved them as a newly married couple, brought our two boys up on them, and they in turn love them as well. We also celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary on January 9th, so I had to make one with little hearts for that day!
My husband and I are birdwatchers, and especially enjoy feeding the birds in our backyard. The squirrels that come are hugely entertaining, but we do spend a lot of time fighting with them to keep them off of the bird feeders!
And for January 31st - an orange peel to go along with my "Paint and Sip" masterpiece of last night.
Showing our Colorado love! It was a very fun evening!
I will be linking up with Quilty 365 at Quilty Folk and I'm looking forward to seeing how other people are having fun with this daily project!
