Summer Calendar Quilt

 I needed something happy and bright to display on the porch.  I chose a whimsical calendar quilt designed by Kim Schaefer.  

I find applique to be an abundance of fussy work, but this pattern was my best option for the look I was aiming for.  It finished at 25 x 33.  I used lots of pieces from my scrap bins (which never seem to dwindle down).  Most of the satin stitching was done with Military Gold Glide thread.

I'm joining these linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.

  1. Very cute and so appropriate for summer.

  2. Such a great binding for a cute quilt. Have a great week!

  3. Such a fun and happy little quilt. As each person steps on your porch, your cheery flowers will cause them to smile.

  4. That's a fun quilt. I've made one of the designs but loaned it to a neighbor and haven't seen it since. Boo hiss! Someday she'll find it and return it if I'm lucky.

  5. Adorable - and definitely meets the bright and cheery requirement.

  6. Very pretty! I have trouble with satin stitching so usually avoid it--your thread choices look great.

  7. This quilt more than fits the bill! So bright and cheerful, perfect compliment to a sun drenched porch during the summer. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  8. It turned out so great!! Such happy summer colors!!! and your applique is beautiful!

  9. What a lovely wall hanging - just right for summer. Blessings,
