2016 Calendar Girls

2016 Calendar Girls Program

Welcome to 12 months of quilt projects based on my perpetual Quilter's Block-a-Day Calendar.

Block a Day Calendar - not tied to any year
This is FREE to anyone with the calendar. Why do you have to have the calendar? Because I structured it so quilt shops could sell the calendar! This was designed in 2008 as an exclusive quilt shop program. It was to drive traffic into shops for a Calendar Girls monthly group. That was the only way you could get the pattern for the quilt.

The calendar has the cutting instructions for the block and you now can get the pattern for the quilt AND a helpful newsletter specific to the type of construction for that particular block.

Tune in each month, usually on the first day, to see that month's offering.

Here is the project for August, Free Trade Stars.

Free Trade Stars wall quilt: 36" x 36"
The project for July is Old Glory Star. I actually made a super-sized version last July for a 3-block wall banner. You can find the link to the FREE patterns for those on this page: Hey, Hey, USA

Here is the project for July:

The project for MARCH is Patches and Leaves. A lovely combination of piecing and simple raw edge applique. I've included a larger quilt, and this table runner uses just 3 of the blocks. Click on the link and you will get more information about them.

  1. I find the scarcity of instructions in the 2016 Quilting Block & Pattern a Day Calendar to be very frustrating.
