Last year I stumbled across this post. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417653.0#axzz2qsTeZEof

And i was intrigued. To see if i could stick with something. Everyday. For one whole year. 

And i can say. Absolutely I can. And absolutely I did.  Grin

Every day at 4pm. I checked the sky, matched the colour and dashed it on the calendar in my sewing room. I broke up the year with a 'seasonal' break colour. I'm really pleased.

Some highlights of the year.

The dark blue. We were on our way home from the UK to CAN. At 4pm in both time zones.

The three strange days of misty weird fog while we were in vacation at the beach in June.


And the backing. Cause I love it!


It surprised me how much blue there was. Tho. Not in the last two months of the year. Smiley and I've already started this year's daily. It's a different idea and execution.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

LOVE IT!!! And again, I am so impressed that you charted it faithfully every single day (already this year, I am struggling!).

I love how you marked the change of seasons, and I love how it shows some weather trends.Excellent choice on the border, too! I like your quilting design, too.

Hooray for you!!! Cheesy Cheesy

This is so awesome! I've heard some friends do this with knitting but the quilt version isn't one I'd thought of. Love! Cheesy

This is absolutely amazing!  So pretty, and read the original post...just a fantastic idea all around.  I can't sew, and just learning to knit, so might have to come up with a paper craft idea to do.

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

I was vaguely following that thread last year. Not as a participant but as someone who is intrigued by those things. I'm so excited to see this finished. It's lovely! And the backing is so great, too.

It turned out so gorgeous...I started the thread as a way to reflect daily and totally failed...probably because i was too impatient to knit only a few rows per day...

but you...you made this gorgeous quilt!!!  It looks random at first, but it has a secret story...a year of your life!!!

sloth---so inspirational and beautiful....you should be quite proud!!
