Let's try one more time

Quilt 365.  Quiltyfolk have caught my attention. 1 a day. I tried this the last time we had a leap year...with building houses from scraps, got a little further than half way and burned out big time. The circles seams much simpler, perhaps I have the stamina for this. With the little houses, I was always trying to get a head, instead of just quilting one a day in twenty minutes I was tried for an hour....or to get five done. Slow and steady wins the race. Lesson learned.

So I am starting this circle adventure on Jan 3rd, here is a link to the project...Quiltyfolk Quilt 365.

My first block, far from perfect, what a good way to practice applique.


But I would dearly love to try and and make a hour glass quilt like this one featured on Barrister's Block.. So maybe I will try to do one-a-day of these hour glass blocks also.


This post of her's was so inspiring! I guess I lean towards more traditional antique quilts than I thought. So many lovelies!

I tried making some little hour glass blocks to see what I could get out of a two contrasting 6" pieces.
Turns out I could get 8 little ones easily.

  1. Applique does improve with practice, but I'm afraid mine will never be perfect anyway.:) Great to have another quilter join in on the fun too!

  3. Your applique looks fine to me! Happy to see you are joining in. I'm using this project to hopefully improve my applique also.

    1. Aww. Thanks for the encouragement! But check out my second circle posting and notice how truly ooglii my first applique attempt was compared to day two. I purposely choose a photo that wasn't totally in focus. Tee-hee.
