Old & New



This was my first calendar quilt, done in 2003. It was a guild challenge and I paperpieced each of the 3 1/2" blocks. I am still proud of how it turned out.




And this is the current quilt challenge. I am thinking of adding the Season's of the Heart monthly (BOM) applique to add to the monthly part. Right now the snowman is not attached: I am waiting until I can better see how the layout would work. And so far I am keep up with getting the strips sewn on: good for me!!

I love your '03 quilt! I'm using that same applique for a doorhanging. He's such a cute snowman, I had to have more than one.

Your first calendar quilt is lovely and you should be very proud of it. I'm also putting a snowman on my January block but haven't decided which one yet. I need to get my progress posted. This is so much fun

You SHOULD be proud of how the 2003 quilt turned out. It looks great. I decided against the snowman and went with the New Years hat instead. But just wait til you see what I have up my sleeve for Feb. Everyone will think I've lost my mind! Oh wait, you have to have something before you can lose it! LOL

Your 2003 quilt is great. The snowman will be great on your 2009 quilt.
