Off we go again 365 Challenge.

The 365 Challenge.

Every one must have heard about it by now, it is all over the internet.

You make 1 block every day for a year. Yep, 365 3 1/2 inch blocks. Now that sounded like fun :0) and  I did like the the quilt pattern, and yes, I thought I could use up all that taupe and blue fabric in my stash .
Finished quilt, arrow points to where we are at the moment.
Well, I am not sure how far I shall get, but here are the first seven days of blocks. Some of this fabric has been in my stash for years, so I am quite pleased it is finally seeing the light of day.

Week one.

Other than doing the tiny blocks for the 365 Challenge, I did finish the blocks for Sue, who is the mama of the month for the Siblings Together 2 Group.
These blocks are called wonky crosses and there is a good tutorial here at
if you want to have a go.

Sue would like to make her quilt for a boy, so hence the colours. I think the child who gets this quilt will love it..

Other than doing a little mending, that is all the sewing I have achieved. plus just a little knitting.
First pair of Socks for 2016.

The Christmas Decks are all down and yes, a little spring cleaning was called for, especially in the sewing room  :0)

Keep safe and keep stitching.......................Doti...


  1. Happy New Year Doti! What a great project the 365 Challenge is! I shall look forward to watching your progress... love your blocks so far! Have a lovely weekend! Christine x

  2. I've been humming & hahing over this one... I certainly don't sew every day but doing 7 blocks a week sounds doable as they are so small.... I have a huge pile of French General that would look fantastic in this quilt.... so maybe I will have a little go & see how far I get.... it could be a table runner.... :-) Happy New Year... x

  3. That sounds a good idea Teresa, I was thinking along the same lines, I will see how far I get. Happy New Year to you. Dotix

  4. Happy New Year to you too Christine, thank you for your kind comments.. Doti.
