Mini Giveaway #23 - Quilting pattern/block calendar

Welcome to our first Giveaway of 2012.  So glad you dropped in. 

I bought this boxy calendar in 2009 and haven't used a pattern from it yet.  They are all lovely, different, and colorful... You will see a lot of paper piecing here, with some basic instructions.   All the necessary information is available....finished sizes, cutting sizes, yardage, etc.....

Here are pictures of the front and back of the stand-up box...




Each quilt is shown at the beginning of the series, with all basic information on the 5 1/2" x 7" cards following (back and front). Since everything is shown on a smaller scale due to the size of the calendar, it shows how big the pattern or block should be enlarged.  Different quilts, depending on their complexity, have from one accompanying card to quite a few.

 Here are a few examples of what are inside....




It has oodles of applique designs which can be incorporated into other quilts as well....

The only thing missing here is minor...one sheet of the date cards on which you can list the patterns you like and where they are...but you can make one up easily enough.....it shouldn't hamper anything.

So comment if you are interested and be available for contact.  DH will draw the winner on January 17 after 10:00am and I will announce it as soon as I can afterwards....

Remember the next giveaway is in a month....February 15th  

See you then......
