I had to make a few blocks ahead, in order to sandwich this flimsy to work on during an upcoming trip to Seattle. The panel takes me through the 31st. I made the red rain drop and the house dots thinking of Seattle. Unfortunately, the water dot now symbolizes the day our toilet ran. And ran. And ran some more. I awoke at 5:30AM to a swamp in our house, a mess we are still working to dry out. Oh Lordy, what a mess. Perhaps I won't be tempted to do dots ahead of time again.
Almost every dot has some sort of story and I am recording them on the backside of the quilt. I made scissors the day Ty and I went for haircuts. Let's see, the upper-right dot is to commemorate the finish of Primarily Circles. Citrus dots for all the lemons and oodles of grapefruit I have been squeezing since the Snowbird's have all been visiting.

I found the fairy tale print in my vintage stash the day I finished reading The Wild One, by Kate Forsyth, a book about The Grimm Brothers.
And a dot for my first OMG sponsor, Bag Maker Supply!
I will be checking out progress with other Quilty 365er's at the February Linkup!
This is the most fun I have had with a project in a long time!!
