Today Audrey suggested I update with the group that is still continuing on their 365quiltycircles, I did not even realise it was still running!!!! How wonderful to see so many quilts completed, I’m not making one quilt but breaking my squares up to make 3 small wall quilts. My squares are made from silk Kimono fabric and all the circles are made from different silk fabrics that I ahve collected for around 30 years or more.
For the last week I have been sewing my last wee squares together, I had appliquéd all the circles on they were just sitting in a little treasure chest waiting to be made in to a wee quilt top.
Here I’m slowly sewing these wee squares in to rows then I will join these rows. This year my challenge is working on 17UFO’s that I choose last Dec I’m linking up each month with Meredithe on Ufosin2017 Each project has 21 days. My last 21 days challenge is sewing my last 88 wee squares which I started a week ago these wee squares were all in that wee wooden-cigar box waiting!!!!!
each evening I have managed to sew a row of these lovely wee squares together and some times sewn two rows together. This is where I’m up to now Friday 5th May 2017 These are all sewn in to pairs so I only have 4 more rows to sew and I will have the quilt top finished so I’ll have 3 quilt tops from my 258 squares. I made more than 365 circles but appliquéd them on to only 258 squares. 2 quilt tops have 90 squares and this one has 88 squares and 124 circles in it. .
Last year working on my second quilt top. Box of circles cut out waiting to be hemed then applqiued on to the tiny squares.
Start of My first 30 tiny squares with there circles for my second wall quilt. Last June
2016 challenge 365 quilty circles. My second quilt top still just a quilt top!!!!
I finished sashiko quilting this wee quilt during the week one down 3 to go LOL
Love how the sashiko makes the circles pop out.

close up so you can see the bigger stitches I use for sashiko quilting, my circles are not so good from the back but over time hopefully it will improve LOL

Thank you for taking the time to keep reading till you reached here and Thank you Audrey for asking me to link up this month to show that I’m still working on my wee circles. With luck I may even get to sandwich this one and sashiko quilt it.
Cheers ALL Glenda Australia.
