Quilter's Block a Day Calendar: Week 23 (and free pattern)
Welcome back to my weekly sharing of the beautiful blocks sewn by Patricia Bryant of Australia. It's not just the blocks that we love - it's the fabulous staging of each one that has constantly amazed all of us.
I have been asked more than once about what sorts of plans Patricia has to put ALL of them into a quilt. If she did that, it would cover the state of Wyoming (just kidding)! And I heard from Janet last week that she received my calendar as a gift last Christmas and has been making one a day since the first of the year. Now we have two Patricias! I want to see these blocks, Janet!
I do have a list of all the calendar blocks in size order. I think if I was going to make a quilt with these, I would make it easy on myself and begin with sorting them by size. Here it is:
Calendar Blocks by Size (Note the dates use "00" because it's a perpetual calendar)
Also, here's a link to see ALL my blocks as they appear in the calendar. This shows two sizes because I produced a CD with each block in TWO sizes. It's fun to scroll through the blocks alphabetically. I plan on republishing the CD sometime soon, or if I can get the file small enough, as a downloadable pdf.
Quilter's Block a Day Calendar - all 366 blocks alphabetically!
