January Block

Finally I have something self made to show again. I'm making my first ever BOM, a country calendar from Ellies Quiltplace, and this is my version of the January block:





The pattern is for embroidery but can also be made as an appliqué like I did. Only the details are embroidered in my block. I decided to use the Finnish names of the months, and my hand written letters ended up a little wonky. I will finally join all the blocks together to make a wall hanging, so this will be a long project!


If you are interested, there is still time to join the fun. Just click the button in my right sidebar. You can also find the photo gallery where people have sent their version of the first block. I think they are very inspiring!

  6. That is wonderful Ulla. Lovely idea to make it in Finnish too. Can you teach us how to pronounce the words?

    What special lace and embroidery books you have kept in your family.

  7. Oh yes.. I've been seeing these around. SO cute. Wonder what next month's picture will be? I like to read January in Finnish. The only letter that is the same is the "a"!

    hee-hee-hee! My verification word is "squadita". Hilarious!

  8. Melanie, Finnish is SO easy to pronounce, everything is pronounced exactly like it is written, stress usually on the first syllable. Like this: T-a-m-m-i-k-u-u
