Calendar Blocks

These are my last two blocks for the Country Calendar BOM. I have shown the November block with the cute little bird earlier. Now I finally got to the October block after buying some black fabric.




The December block was easy to make. I will put the blocks together to make a quilt, but that will happen in January. This time of the year is too busy.



Working on these blocks instead of Christmas gifts to my nearest and dearest, or at least baking lovely cakes and mountains of gingerbread reminds me of the time I was supposed to study for the final exams in high school. I wanted to study, I really did, but I always found myself cross-stitching yellow flowers on linen to make pretty placemats. I passed the exams anyway, and I want to believe Christmas will come as well.

  1. Oh Ulla they look so beautiful. I think the finished quilt will look amazing.

    Maybe sitting and sewing is a good way for your mind to prepare for the next stage of busy-ness?

  2. Pretty. Now you have a new project for the New Year!

    I'd rather be baking than studying too.

  3. Your calendar quilt is going to be gorgeous! Can't wait! I have a feeling you were the type of person who just always passed tests without studying! Take care!
