I am doing the Calendar Quilt Challenge too. I'm doing daily 10 inch strips - mostly around the seasons - so Jan & Feb. are wintry fabrics. But I'm adding dau specific strips if they stand out - like inauguation day has a patriotic strip. Oh, & I am a sucker for a full moon so I'm adding a special strip for those each month. Here is my up to date quilt - the left one is Jan. & the start of Feb is on the right. I've machine embroidered the month on the first block of each.

If I had of known I might have done this, imagine each hike and exploration trip we did over summer could have been written in, green for forests, gold for beach etc. Sounds like fun, keep posting each month, vicarous leeches wanna see!!!

You could still start one for yourself, Gimpy... you would have so much to put in a quilt like that...

Hey! I just had a thought! :party-075:

I could quilt for the rest of my life making SCRAP quilts
and never have to coordinate/match fabrics again.


This is probably not news to many of you, but I just realized this.

I'm going to have to ponder this... who knows what could come of it...


Wanna go on a little field trip? Check out THIS post from the Tallgrass Prairie Studios blog.

Seriously. This is really changing the way I'm thinking. I just read the latest love-fest in the Baltimore Bliss thread - THAT could be done with scraps, not necessarily coordinated or themed...

Yep. Definitely going to ponder....

Hmmmm but if you don't do any coordinated projects-where do you get the scraps? Just chop up new fabric and throw it in a box?
