365 Challenge

In 2007 Leanne Beasley posted a message on her blog about making a quilt with a block for every day of the next year. Knowing I wouldn't have enough discipline to write up a note for every day, I decided to make one block per month to keep track of highlights and decorate each block with stitcheries by my favourite designers. I've wanted to make a "star" quilt for some time, so thought this quilt was a good opportunity to find various star block patterns and hunt out all my red/cream/white fabrics. Amazing how many fabrics can be called "red". The time has gone so quickly and now I'm working on January's stitchery block.

just happened to notice your side note about 365 challenge.
I so love how you have done your top.
I took this challenge on too but followed Leanne's instructions. Mine is just a huge top folded up and put away. I did add a bit of stitching and piecing along the way to break it up. Yours looks much more practical and appealing. Have you quilted it yet?
