One birthday year project done and another started

Today is my birthday!!!! Yesterday I finished the black on white daily stitching and have them all sewn together.
Here are the last three.
A close up of the last one.

The whole thing.
I've enjoyed doing this sew much that I've now started another one. This year I'll be using fabrics that I've either rusted or indigo dyed. I have quite a few pieces of both, but at some time during the year I will have to do more. I've wanted to do more anyway but couldn't justify it if I wasn't using them - so now I am. Here is what I'm starting with.

The first one is done.
I'm keeping with the same 4" size .
Here are #70 - #72 of the other group.

and a close up of week #11
Now I'm off to get a massage, my birthday gift to myself. I've already spent the morning with a friend for coffee, a visit to our favorite nursery, a bit of shopping and lunch.

    1. Thanks Kathy. The only reason it's all together is because every time I had enough for a row I'd sew them together. If I had saved them all till the end I might never get them together.

  5. Love this! It is so inspiring! My birthday isn't until the summer, but I'm thinking I could do a "quarterly" small quilt until then!

    1. A quarterly quilt sounds good. I think it's always good to start small, then if it works well and you like it then do more.

  13. Just saw Pokey's post and came over here. Oh, I do love your daily stitch project! so similar to the way I work, except it looks like you're better at sticking to a theme. Seriously, love what you're doing! I'm inspired by both the black and white theme and the rust and indigo. very cool!
