2016 and the 365 Quilt Block Challenge

I’m old enough to have a good degree of self-knowledge and admit that I am not likely to complete a year-long challenge project in the manner set forth.  But that doesn’t bother me.  I like trying new things and being part of a group challenge — hence taking on the amazing quilt along hosted by   Kathy here: 365 challenge

Strips and scraps in blacks and greys ready to stitch each day. Finished blocks stored in clean pizza box.

That said — here’s what I’ve got so far:
