Hi Calendar Ladies!

Hello from freezing Michigan! I'm Melissa.

I finally started on the challenge today! I know, I know...I am a bit of a slacker. That is what is so great about doing it with all of you! You lend inspiration, and a bit of pressure to get the job done, which I so desperately need sometimes. hehehe


So I blogged about my post here:



But if you are overwhelmed with blogs to read I can just put a short little synopsis here to share.

I am going to follow some of your very SMART, brainy ideas and keep a little calendar page for each month with short descriptions of the day. I am planning to work on my challenge weekly, so that will help me select the fabrics when it comes time to work on it. Then I am going to print those pages on fabric and incorporate them into the back of the quilt!!


I am doing strips whatever size x 12 to start and will trim the strip to 10" or 11" when it comes time to piece it all together. I am using ONLY scraps for every part of the quilt!! FUN =)


Here is January so far with a plain white piece on Jan 1st to represent a blank slate for the Brand New Year!!

looks great! Looks like your months so far have been as dark and dreay as the weather--don't get me wrong, I love all the dark colors--I was just commenting on the fact that darks and blues make me think of COLD and SNOW and RAIN and YUCKY weather--all of which seems to be happening a lot around the good ol' USofA.
Welcome to the blogging fun here. I'll be checking in at your blog as well to check on you too!
Quilting Together,
Shelly

P. S. I love, love, love this idea of yours--think I'll have to borrow it. What idea is that? This one where you said, "Then I am going to print those pages on fabric and incorporate them into the back of the quilt!!" What a GREAT way to be able to look back and see it all make sense--either to you or to a family member down the line! AWESOME Girl!
