More Circles 365

Here are a few more circles I made for my circle 365 project.

Circle Block 251

 I've probably made a sun like this before, but this fabric really wanted to be made into a sun.

Circle Block 252

I know I've  made a face before, but that fabric looked likes eyes to me, and my other face needed a friend or soul mate.

Circle Block 253

These are just scraps thrown together on a background. They didn't say anything to me, but the background did say "ouch" when it was pulled too hard by the machine.

Circle Block 254

A pretty lacy fabric. I sewed it on a background circle and then put the circle on the background with a decorative stitch. I also decorative stitched on the lace itself to make sure it wouldn't snag too much on anything.

Circle Block 255

This one is an attempt to copy a design I have on a blouse. The blouse is made in India but says dashiki which is an African design, so I don't know if the motif is Indian or African.

Circle Block 256

Leftovers from Sweet Land of Liberty.  I copied a circle I saw somewhere, but it had a white inner circle and didn't have a dark background, so pretty much the only thing I copied was using a stripe for a circle and putting something on top of it to make an O. I don't know if it will be in this orientation or rotated in the final quilt.

15 Minutes to Stitch

I am late posting my progress for last week, as usual but I definitely sewed all seven days working on the bricks quilt and the Liberty quilt and the circles quilt. It looks like I missed a week of progress report, but I know I've been diligently quilting every day, usually more than 15 minutes, so I am going to go ahead and give myself full credit for the missing week.  My work is going to start getting busy again soon, and I want to finish the year above 80%.

My progress as of Sunday was:

15 Minute sessions of stitching this week:  7 out of 7
15 Minute sessions of stitching this year:  226 out of 273 sessions
Success rate: 83%

I like seeing more of those improv circles.

Glad you are playing with circles again. They all say fun. And 253 said "boat" to me.

Love the smiley face. I’m going to try fifteen minutes a day, it would at least make me more consistent, I wouldn’t forget where I was up to, and progress is progress, right?

I love that little sun and wish we had more sun here. I also love that little gift you sent me. It arrived on my birhtday! Will have to include it in a post when I get back to blogging a bit more regularly.

It's amazing how many ways you can interpret a circle. I like the face one and the patriotic ones. Congrats on finding time to stitch each day.

You certainly have created some very different circles for your 365 quilt. It is not a project I got involved in but it has been interesting to see what people have used for their blocks.
