Quilty 365 Loves Halloween

October's Quilty 365 circles had a lot of Halloween influence!  Here they are, laid out to mimic October's calendar page.  I started making circles for Audrey's project last November, and as of October 31, I've completed 362 circles.  I thought I might sneak my last few circles into October's post, but decided to wait and officially finish in November.  Maybe I'll even have time to do some block layout before it's time to post November's results!

As always, I tried to have my daily circle reflect something that was going on in my life - even if it was only a weather update.  Since my memory ain't what it used to be, I've been writing snippets about each day in a journal, as well.

The weather this October has been unseasonably warm.  There have even been some record-setting temperatures during the past 4 weeks.  I'm ready for boots and sweaters, not more sandals and t-shirts!

There were lots of events to commemorate this month, too.  Birthdays, vacations, homecoming football games, Important Baseball Games and even a quilting trunk show and workshop.  Sadly, the entire state of Louisiana mourned the loss of the beloved LSU football mascot, Mike (VI) the Tiger.

And where would October be without Halloween?  It has always been my favorite holiday!  I love collecting Halloween-themed fabrics - maybe one of these days I'll actually make a Halloween quilt with them. 

I'm linking up with Audrey's Quilty 365 post for October.  I haven't checked it out myself yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing lots of fun circles!


  1. I am seriously impressed with your perseverance on this project. It's going to be a really cool quilt!

  2. Wow! Hurray for you for sticking with it! I'm looking forward to seeing all those circles together!

  3. So many great focus fabrics again this month! It's going to be fun seeing how all these circles come together into finished quilts. I wonder how many thousands of circles have been stitched across the country for this QAL!

  4. That is amazing that you could keep up with this project for a whole year! You have solid commitment abilities that's for sure!

  5. 362 out of 365? Not bad!! I'm not sure that I would be able to keep up with daily circles. Looking forward to seeing your quilt come together!

  6. Great blocks. I love the way you use them sort of like project life.
