January UFO: #5 ~ completed!

YAY me! i started this Friendship Quilter's Calendar quilt last January. every month, our group has made another block, representative of that month. i completed my blocks using the 9 patch sashing, with hourglass borders, and another wide, plain border.

i plan to have it hand quilted, and would like to enter this one in our local county fair in July.


today was our monthly meeting of our group, Friendship quilters. 3 more calendar quilts were completed, and brought in. how exciting to see all the different possiblities from the same 12 blocks! (sorry for the terrible pictures! i'll try to get better ones somtime...)

It's beautiful! I can just picture it all hand-quilted, too. I'm sure it'll be a winner at the fair. :o) Great job!

It's gorgeous, and I really like your setting. One of the best things about quilting is the variety, and how no 2 quilts are ever exactly the same, even when using the same basic elements.

I really liked the setting you used for your sampler. I have a couple samplers that I need to finish also.

Nice job on your sampler quilt! How fun to see all the other arrangements using the same blocks:)
