I always have several beautiful calendars hanging in the house. One of life’s little pleasures for me is to turn the calendar over to a new page at the first of each month. I usually have at least three quilty calendars and two art calendars. They inspire me all year.
A beauty I’m using for 2012 is Martingale’s Award-Winning Quilts calendar. It features quilts by well known folks like Becky Goldsmith, Pat Holly, Jean Wells Keenan, Sharon Schamber and Lenore Crawford.
For a jam-packed deal of a calendar, go to That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar 2012. Complete patterns for all 12 of the featured quilts are included! They range from scrappy to floral applique, in fabrics including reproduction prints, batiks, bold brights, neutrals and more. At $16.99, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Have you heard of Mrs. Bobbins? She’s a hilarious quilter who is never short of a witty comeback. Kansas City Star Quilts presents Iron Maiden, Mrs. Bobbins’ 2012 Calendar. What makes Mrs. Bobbins so enjoyable is that it’s all true! Meet the “real” Mrs. Bobbins, Camille Olcese, who provides some of the inspiration for artist Julia Icenogle. And if you just can’t get enough of Mrs. B, visit Mrs. Bobbins’ General Store.
I have copies of That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar 2012 and Iron Maiden, Mrs. Bobbins’ 2012 Calendar for giveaway!
Leave a comment by midnight Thursday, Dec. 22 and tell us in which month you find the most time for quilting. I’ll pick two lucky winners and announce them here. The winners are Marcia and Leslie. Thanks for playing along!
