A January Finish
Remember I said that I was going to add a little SPIN to these Redwork Calendar Girl blocks? Well here we are! Rather than sew the blocks with simple sashings my friend - Sue & I are going to make the redwork months the center of "fancier" blocks. Each month I will come up with a variation of a block design to make it work with the 9" Redwork center. For January I chose to improvise on a block called BROKEN WHEEL. Fitting I thought as wagon wheels don't work so well in snow. (grin)
The block now finishes at 15". I'm hoping that a layer cake of Rouenneries Deux and a quarter yard of tea dyed muslin will be enough to block frame all 12 of these Calendar Girls. Happy to say that January is finally finished!
The original 1930's quilt looked like this one below. You can get the pattern for it at Nana's Needlework ... HERE.
every quilt tells a story....
