These blocks needed something to tie them together (an organizing fabric!) and I found a bunch of 4 inch strips of Kona Maize in my stash which seemed like it would work! I also noticed that there were a lot of scraps left from the Kate Spain Honey Honey jelly roll I bought a couple years ago in the granny squares, so I used a few more of those for some corner stones in between the blocks.
I backed it with some leftover mint green Into the Woods dots, and used some strips of Hello Sunshine for the binding. This quilt finished up at about 36" x 36." All that is left is to finish hand sewing the binding. I may save this sweet quilt for a future baby, or donate it. I haven't decided yet!
I have also been enjoying seeing the posts about Quilty 365, and decided to join in with my own take on it. I am making orange peels (using this tutorial) and backing them with charm squares of Modern Backgrounds in Paper by Zen Chic.
The idea is to make one block a day that represents something from that day, such as an activity, a feeling, etc, for a whole year! I started on December 1st, so the first block has the Number 1 in it. My husband and I enjoy going to a local coffee shop many mornings to begin our day, little penguins (because... that's me!), and some fun Christmas fabric to remind me of attending a holiday show at the local dinner theater with a friend. I think this will be quite fun, and hopefully, something I can keep up with!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! My husband and I are off to see our sons for a belated Thanksgiving. We had to stay home last week because of crummy weather. Looking forward to some turkey leftovers!
