Over the last few months, my daily circles have slowly evolved into "monthly" circles; the excitement of making them every day dropped a bit about halfway through.
That was until we neared the end of the month, then I was playing catch up for the monthly link up at Quilty Folk. Surprisingly It was still very much enjoyable once I started, go figure. I have completed all my circles except for three. I started my circles on November 15, but I decided to power through and finish them all and be done with it.

Here are all my circles by months:













The extra circles

I try different layouts, but as you know, it was impossible to make a design with 365 blocks, so I round it up at 380; I thought it was preferable just to make a few extra circles. What's a few more when you've been making them for a year?

Here is a rough sketch of my layout (the center isn't quite accurate but, I didn't feel like drawing another one). Just to give you an idea of what I am aiming for.

I played with three different shades of red for my circle's background. The lighter ones will be placed in the center, then the med red around the middle section and the darker ones, all the way around the outside. Hope this comes together nicely.

I just can't wait to put all my blocks together, it's been a while since the last time I've played with them but, that will have to wait for now. I won't be back in FL until the beginning of December, and I have a couple of quilts I would love to finish for Christmas first.

Stay tuned!
