Finished up my Quirky Quilty 365

Audrey from Quilty Folk had an idea last year that we should all sew circles, 1 per day, for 365 days.

There were many participants with a wonderful variety of interpretations on this idea.

I will say that they were all lovely and that mine was probably the weirdest, lol!   The center represents the Tree of Life from the Kabbalah ( I was reading a book on that at the time. )  All of the little circles represent the 9 months that I lasted doing it before quitting, and the bottom 3 blocks are my rendition / adaptations of a few blocks from the “Home Sweet Home” book by Barb Adams & Alma Allen.

One year I had a hollyhock that grew to over 20 feet, one block was worked on around the 4th of July… so it is nice that I finished the tying and binding on the 3rd of July in another year :)

My quirky Quilty 365 is crossed off the list of quilt tops to finish. It measures around 75 x 55.

    Quirky is good. Someone in the far future will look at your quilt and wonder what the story is behind it.

  4. Joyce says:

    From a “principles and elements of design” perspective, you needed the rectangular houses to provide contrast with the circular shapes!
    I like it a lot and can see you staging a game with the kids: “okay! find a green circle with a bit of yellow on it……” Keeps ’em busy and quiet while they search!

    it is so very original! love it and you finished it with all the originality of quilting now it doesn’t look strange in the least.

    I love it!! It is quirky, which makes it so interesting. I even see a cross in there. I can see myself, as a child, trying to find a list of “hidden objects” in that quilt.

    I hope your label will share the story of your “quirky” whimsical quilt.
