I had made a mental note to start looking for a desk planner/calendar for 2013 when D&C Publishing sent me a box of goodies to review. In the box was their “Quilter’s Desk Diary 2013”.
I am a little picky about planners as I like them in my style. I like the week listed out on one layout.
This one has that.
I like to be able to see the whole month too.
This one has that too! The left hand page always has a quilt. The right hand side always has the planner. That means there are 52 quilts and quilted projects to enjoy throughout the book. In the back of the book is a listing of each quilt and tells where the pattern for it can be found.
I love the planner and am keeping it. Planner shopping is one thing I can check off my shopping list..I have a perfect one!!
Come back next Tuesday and see what I'm reviewing then.
I love the quilt on the cover and the bargello! Thanks for sharing about the planner.
Pretty front cover, can only be a good quilting book.
Very cute planner! My “new” thing ties in with a recent post of yours. I am going to do Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt with the colors she suggested. I’m a civil war colors kind of girl, too, but thought it would be fun to do something outside the box. I only had a few pieces that would work, so I’m going to shop around a bit…that’s always fun!
I tested a new pattern for a designer…of course, I had to tweak the border (just like bobbins, I guess!) and fell in love with the pattern. You can see it at http://farmquilter.blogspot.com/ The designer sent it to Quilters Magazine but said I could post pictures before publication.
I love that planner! Those quilts look beautiful…how fun to have a new one each week :)
