Day 2: 31 Day Blog Challenge: Circles

A random quilt picture selected from January. These are On Ringo Lake blocks. The project is now a quilt top.

It's become a mystery of sorts, hasn't it.  With a standard title like Day 2, you have no idea whether it will be feast or famine today. Will you get just a random picture you have probably already seen before, or will you get to see some quilty eye candy  or anything worth a click?


The sun is out today, and it has energized me to make more progress on a quilt.  Today, the lucky winner is the Circles 365 quilt. You. I mean you are the winner, because you get to see quilting progress.  When I put 365 away for the gathering, I had plans to put the existing blocks together in rows, but I didn't have time. So now I have done that.  Before I could, I had to add a couple more blocks.

Circle Block 257

I had X's on the brain from the 70273 blocks and grabbed the first available fabric to make this block.

Circle Block 258

This bird circle was already in the box with the rows so all I had to do was put it on a background fabric and sew it down. I hope the wrinkled fabric doesn't make your eye twitch.

And with these two blocks and some coping strips, I put the three sets of rows together.  Here it is in multiple photos. As the rows get added, the blocks seem to get smaller and smaller in order to fit into the camera range.

You are right! I am a winner of eye candy and a smile! I've always loved your circles and now love them even more when I see them going together. Way to go!
