Challenge quilt 1

Bea, our patchwork inspirative in our local quilt group, pushes us every second year to try something completely new. This year it is calendar quilts. We are supposed to make a quilt (or quilts) to relate the year 2007.



After pondering a lot (well that´s the point, isn´t it) I decided to make a quilt book. I will sew for each month a mini quilt (12´by 12´) to reflect what happened in my life or around. January was the occasion to try Tonya´s letters. I started my blog in January and therefore the quilt. I used only scraps and I quilted it with thick cotton thread. I am thinking of adding buttons maybe with a @ if I can find some. I still don´t know what I will make for February but I am thinking hard!

You did a good job in your G. I don't like the way mine turned out on my wall hanging. Next time mine will be more like the one you have done.
