Quilt Calendar: January 1st – 6th, 2009
And here is it up close:
I was inspired! I had just picked up a print that had all the months of the year on it…not knowing that I was doing this challenge, that is where the 1st row came from. I had to do some cheating; cut out each mitten block and sewed them together, making my strip 2 X 11. I really like an idea that one of the women in the challenge is doing; journalling each strip. Each strip was picked for a reason and I am pleased with the result.
Row #1: January
Row #2: Wine bottles for celebrating January (plus it was sitting right on my sewing table.
Row #3: I wanted to see how purple meshed with winebottles (check a previous post about Quilting gone bad 😦
Row #4: The material called me…saying that it was winter….blue, blue skies with snow…I like the effect.
Row #5: First day back to work; I’m a teacher.
Row #6: Today- the day that I figured out what was going to happen in my sewing room for the next little bit.
I can’t wait until tomorrow. I have so many ideas when I look at the beginning of my quilt on my design wall. I think that this quilt will be embellished with embroidery and…the world is my oyster.
Time for bed!
