Quilty 365 – Day 50

I started my Quilty 365 project on November 14 and I am now on day 50

The second linky party of this Quilt-A-Long hosted by Audrey is open (I missed the first one …) and every participant can share progress. Some went with regular blocks, some vary on circle sizes,  backgrounds, …

You can see here December linky party as well and have a look at Hilda’s indigo circles, Stephie’s improv’ work, Glenda’s old kimono fabrics, Maryse’s gorgeous red background and many other interpretations.

J’ai commencé mon projet Quilty 365 le 14 novembre et je suis maintenant au jour 50

Le deuxième “linky party” du Quilt-A-Long organisé par Audrey est ouvert (j’ai manqué le premier …) et chaque participant peut y partager son avancement. Certains sont partis avec des blocs réguliers, d’autres varient sur la taille des cercles, sur les fonds, … 
Vous pouvez aussi voir ici le “linky party” de décembre et jeter un oeil sur les cercles indigo de Hilda, le travail impro de Stephie, les tissus provenant d’anciens kimono qu’utilise Glenda, le magnifique fond rouge de Maryse et beaucoup d’autres interprétations.

Quilty 365 - Late in my appliqué work

I try to reduce my pile of left overs (yeah !). Some days I just pick fabrics among scraps of my favourite quilts.
J’essaie de diminuer mon tas de chutes (yeah !). Certains jours, je choisi seulement des tissus parmi les chutes de mes quilts préférés.

Some circles are more related to something particular.
Certains cercles sont plus liés à quelque chose de particulier.

I got back to basting stitches method for preparing my appliqué circles. The “foil” method is really clever but I feel more comfortable with the traditional method and I have also better results.
Je suis revenue à la méthode du fil de fronce pour préparer mes cercles à appliquer. La méthode “papier d’aluminium” est vraiment ingénieuse mais je me sens plus à l’aise avec la méthode traditionnelle et j’ai aussi de meilleurs résultats.

I decided to start joining my blocks along the way and not waiting for sewing 365 blocks in the end. I keep going improv’ and use Sherri Lynn Wood’s piecing approach. You can read more details here.
J’ai décidé de commencer à assember mes blocs en cours de route et de ne pas attendre de coudre 365 blocs à la fin. Je continue dans le style improvisation avec l’approche d’assemblage de Sherri Lynn Wood. Vous pouvez lire plus de détail ici.

  1. Hi Sophie and Happy New Year! I love your way to make this project! I sort of joined but didn't want just square blocks with circles and I started to make mugs. I really like how you make the background. x Teje

  2. Happy New Year Sophie. I love the variation you've introduced in the shapes and sizes of your blocks. Will you retain this limited palette for the whole year?

  3. I really like this approach – the variety of sizes, the simple palette and the way that not all your circles sit centrally within their blocks. I think this will be a very successful piece.

  4. Oh my, this is just gorgeous! Love the fabrics and the way you're joining the pieces together. After seeing so many fabulous interpretations, I keep thinking my version is going to be the country bumpkin quilt!:)

  5. I quite agree with everyone else. Varying the backgrounds – in fabrics, arrangements and sizes – is a wonderful idea. Your color palette is so attractive.

  6. Your blocks are so beautiful, I love that you have fabric for the star wars film release, and christmas. How nice it will be for you to look back on and be able to point out the circles meanings! Hannah

  7. Sophie your blocks are gorgeous! So 'clean' and graphic – I really love the limited colour palette you're working with and the Sherri Wood improv approach to joining them is perfect. You've got the right idea making a start on that already. I had planned to, but then I got a headache thinking about it!!! Happy New Year Sophie!
