Martingale and Company sent me some goodies to keep or share with you…Lucky you, I am sharing and not keeping. So, do you have a calendar yet? I already have what I need so I though I would show you these two beauties and give you a chance to win them.
The one to the left is That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar 2012. The one of the right, 2012 Calendar Award-Winning Quilts. Both of the calendars have a eyelet for reinforcement when hanging. I love that option. Last year friends had gave me a calendar that didn’t have a reinforcement and it was constantly ripping and I was always taping it.
The 2012 Calendar Award-Winning Quilts features amazing artsy quilts from the International Quilt Association. The quilts are VERY detailed and amazing to view. These quilts are all WAY beyond any quilts that I will ever make as many feature applique and intricate details. Here’s a view of the quilt from January..
…and here’s one from September. See what I mean? AMAZING.
Each of the calendars have large places to write appointments, birthdays, holidays and other events in. The quilts featured for each of the months all represent colors and themes of the months. For example here a quilt from June. Those butterflies beautifully represent summer.
The other calendar, That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar 2012, is my favorite one. This calendar has quilts that I would make in it…quilts that I would easily make because the patterns are include..
Yep, patterns included, see?
I love this snail’s trail quilt on January’s pages.
Here’s a Kim Diehl quilt on the October page….
The graphics from the quilt are taken and extended onto the calendar page. It looks so nice.
All of the calendar pages are beautiful. It’s neat that the patterns are included in this calendar. Someone more ambitious than I am could make the quilts for each months and have a beautiful set of quilts to decorate their home.
Each calendar is a treasure…I was oh so tempted to keep one, but I bought a calendar back in December and wrote all our birthdays and events on it…and I really don’t need two calendars.
Do any of you need or want a calendar? You can win one of these by leaving a comment telling me what event are you most excited to write on the calendar if you win it? I’ll pick TWO winners on Tuesday. The first name chosen will get their choice of calendar and the second name drawn will get the other calendar.
