Teach Us to Number Our Days

In November 2015, Audrey of Quilty Folk issued a challenge to make one circle for each day of the year—Quilty 365.  I began on November 5, 2015, and immediately got behind.  I would get caught up, then fall behind again.  Finally, I finished the top in August.  Making the backing, quilting, and binding remained.  This week—TA DAH--I finished completely.  I’m so glad that it’s finished. 

I’m of a certain age, and I realize that my days are not infinite.  This quilt serves as a reminder to me to savor each moment, appreciate each day.  It also reminds me to count my blessings.  Thanks, Audrey, for a wonderful challenge.

  1. Love it so much! What a great finish.:) I especially like how it has the darker color on the outside so that the circles seem to almost float across the quilt!
