I found out yesterday that Audrey at Quilty Folks is having a link up for her idea of doing one circle a day.
She calls it Quilty 365.
Well after I had read her post about what she was doing, it was a no-brainer .....I was in on this. I had to think about what I wanted my circles to be as far as color and design.
So after some thought of what to make, the only good answer was, an I-spy quilt
How long I have been collecting fabric ? Long before they were born.
And since these are for two toddlers, I'm hopeful that they will get a lot of wear and youth. The technique of putting the circles onto the background needs to be what I consider more sturdy, something that can take some wear and washing.
Then I take my squares that I had pre-cut of my background fabric. Right now there are three different choices. But I figure I'll be adding to this before the year is up. They are cut to 6" squares because I thought that would work best for making a twin size quilt for each one of the boys. I believe Audrey is using a 4 1/2" square and I have the others who have done multiple big small various sizes.
Now it's ready to be pressed onto the fabric with my hot iron, fuse according to directions and now it's ready to be stitched on with the machine.
Also since I have twin grandsons, I'm making two quilts, so I'm going to need extra circles according to my math. I started making my circles 9 days ago. November 24.
I want to thank Audrey for this idea... it gave me the inspiration to actually get going on the boys quilts that I've been wanting to do.
I'm linking my post to Audrey's link up and here's the link if you want to go check out what others are making with her inspirational idea.
