Project 365: Day 1 11/16/2015

This is day 1, block 1 of project 365, where I make a circle block a day to represent my day.  Today's circle is brought to you by the color green, because I painted a picnic table I recently bought.  I had some leftover paint in the garage, and decided to use it instead of buying new paint, and it happens to be green.  I like the green picnic table. I especially like that the weather is cooperating and it was warm and dry enough to paint outside.  Didn't even need a coat. Last year, we had snow.

 Since picnic tables are not round, I decided to make a tree instead.  I put some french knots in it for apples, and I will eat an apple after I finish this post to make an apple tree more appropriate.

It is raw edge, free form, no freezer paper or fusible used.  When I went searching for brown fabric, I decided to use scraps instead of whole fabric, which apparently is a new rule I may or may not use throughout the project.

The cream and the green fabrics are both leftovers of the Islamic tile quilt.  The brown fabric was in the Lansing Leaves leftover bag, but it appeared to be a full fat quarter (don't tell the quilt police!). Maybe it started its life as a half yard fabric.

What a great first block. And so fun to read how it came about!

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party! I do hope you'll join in again.
