Found some time to finish up the August strip for the Calendar Quilt. You might remember--it's the online group project where we add a strip a day to represent something about that month. Could be a holiday, a birthday, a trip, the weather, fabrics from projects that month, etc. It will eventually be set in a Chinese Coins setting. First picture is the month of August. Next two photos are April through August and January through March. Last photo is how they are stored--wrapped around a cardboard tube. We're gonna need a bigger tube!!! I also sewed up a little block for the September BOM for my guild. If you bring a block, your name goes into the basket. Winner takes all the blocks (or half if we get a large number). I would really like to win these as I think they would make cute spacer blocks or border blocks on a Christmas or wintry quilt. I'm NOT holding my breath though LOL. Looks like I'll have to load the BOM block separately as Picasa is only letting me blog 4 photos.
