365/366 Quilt Project.

A day late and a block short I've got almost the first three months of this year completed.  Just before writing this post I cut some more backgrounds so I can catch up and have all done to today. I plan to bundle the first three months together and won't sew my blocks together until all are stitched.
 The ones on the far right are new for this month, they didn't photograph as well as I'd like so I'll do them again before I pack them up.
 Love the bottom right one, it looks like an anemone to me.
 Along the bottom are more of the blocks I stitched yesterday.
 The bottom row of what is up on the big wall.
 Love the typewriter with the quilting words behind. The scissors with buttons and two rows below thread.
 Some of these were from last month, they fell off and had to be place on the wall again.
Here is a better picture of some of the new blocks on the wall.  Love the mini hexagon print and the Jen Kingwell one on the right top.
 Ants in the garden and for the birds to eat.  Button, Button who's got a button.
 More birds and a few Spring Bunnies for March.

Finished stitching this block a short time ago, my dad used to drive a VW pick up truck for his work, I always wished we had one of these camper vans back in the 1960's.
 Here are my first two blocks for April 1 and second.  Decided to hop to it and get a good start for the month.  Now to keep stitching one a day.

 Happy Spring finished on Easter Monday.  It is a freebie from Kaaren Johnston and her blog the Painted Quilt. You can find it under her Friday Freebies called Happy Easter.  I decided to change the lettering more to my handwriting and say Happy Spring!
 All stuffed and ready to join the other Spring Easter pillows I made.
I'm linking up today with Quilty Folk blog, I'll do it once this post goes up. Then back to stitching the remaining circles.

You have done well getting three month's worth of circles done in one and a half! I love the circles with a story: the anemone and the VW Camper Van especially!

Love your fussy cut circles and how they all look together. That is a darling little pillow, too! Your package is in the mail as of Monday noon!

It's always fun to see what people find to fussy cut. Yours are so charming, especially the VW van.
