Calendar

A few days ago I received a surprise in the mail from my dear friend Kathie. The American Patchwork and Quilt 2008 calendar which has her tumbler quilt on the cover! Isn’t it lovely. The colors and fabrics she used are awesome! Just like what I like. A booklet comes with the calendar with the patterns for all 12 quilts in the calendar. A few weeks ago I received the leftover tumblers in a large ziploc bag from her quilt and her friend Patty’s quilt. They thought it would be nice so I could use them in my memory/friendship quilt. Lucky me :-)

Great calendar. And even more fun when you know someone who have made a quilt in it. Tumblers are so fun to sew!!

Very great surprise! I"m still trying to find the calendar! Kathie said she finally had to email them to get it! If I can't find it at the show next weekend that is what I'm going to have to do!

That is a beautiful quilt and I'm sure your version will be lovely too. I recently bought the book One Patch Quilts and a tumbler is one of the quilts I'd like to make.

All these tumbler quilts are so fun and so inspiring! Lucy, what is the title of the book behind the calendar, please? I love your blog. It's full of happiness.

Lucy I can't get to your email address. May I post a picture of your 5 in 1 UFO quilt on my blog?

I bought the same calendar just because of the quilt on the cover!

I think I've ordered the right calendar...It was listed under That Patchwork Place on amazon.com, but the description seems identical to the calendar you have posted about. I'll know for sure in about a week. Here's keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for posting about this.
