And March. I still have a few more to go for March.
I have tried to make each circle represent something that has happened on every day - a birthday, anniversary, gardening, cooking, sewing, having a day out with friends, the beach, a holiday, maybe weather related like an umbrella for rain, blue for clear skies or doing mundane domestic chores. I am thinking that this will be a memory quilt of 2016.
I am using a close zig zag stitch on my machine to applique each circle onto a background of off white fabric and my stitching around a circle is getting plenty of practice. It is quite a tedious task pulling the threads through and tying them off - a good job for in front of tv of a night.
I am really enjoying rummaging through my scraps and novelty fabrics to find a suitable piece to describe the day. Three months down and 9 to go. This is going to be quite a big quilt. Perhaps I will make 6 months on the front and 6 months on the back - two for the price of one. I will give this more thought as my block count grows.
If you would like to see what other One Monthly Goals have been achieved during March head over here.

Happy sewing all
