A present for every day of the year! Jan 18, 2008
I have recently become "addicted" to quilting and this calendar gives me a "present" of viewing beautiful quilt blocks each day of the year. I have already found several I want to make. The pages are colorful and I like how it shows you to cut the material and put the block together. The only thing more that I would like to see is a small picture of several of the blocks put together on a page to get a visual of what a quilt or wall hanging would look like made with that particular block.
A wonderful pairing perfect for 2008! Aug 6, 2007
366 blocks for every day of the year include traditional, seasonal and holiday quilts in pages packed with full-color detail and cutting keys and a spiral binding to keep it all useful and together throughout the year. This is a fine quilter's desk calendar blending the practicality of a block calendar with the inspiration of a quilter's guide. A wonderful pairing perfect for 2008!
365 patterns plus a calendar! Jun 22, 2007
Two things that every quilter needs is a calendar to keep track of when that quilt must be finished and ideas ---- LOTS OF IDEAS for making that quilt. If you have ever had "quilter's block" (that's like writer's block, hehe), then this calendar is a must for you.
There are 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 18 inch blocks so you have a chance to use all those leftover scrapes to create a block. No scrape is too small for this calendar! And if you make the one block featured each day by the end of the year you will have enough square to put together several quilt tops! We always say we are going to find more time to quilt and this calendar helps you do just that. One square doesn't take that long to put together!
There are themes such as Valentines and Easter. There are appliqué and straight piecing. There are straight and curved pieces. AND the back of the calendar gives you pages of basic instructions plus templates needed to create the squares. If that is not enough, there is even an index of all the blocks in this wonderful calendar plus what size each block will be.
I don't know where else you can get 365 blocks in 6 x 6 x 1 ½ inches of space. It is definitely a calendar I will use over and over again even if I don't mange to get once block made each day! Be sure to get one for yourself or a quilting friend.
