Just a couple of weeks into the month and I'm happy to say that my redwork Calendar Girl for May has a finished block/border.
The pattern I chose for the block surround is a variation of a popular block with several names. I like Ladies Choice and thought it most appropriate for May and Mother's Day.
Here is Block #1 of the Vintage Rouge 6 month BOM program by Marcus Brothers.
I'm hosting a free sew-along for quilter's that are making this quilt. It's a forum to help motivate, exchange tips/ideas and share your pictures and progress. You can find easy assembly tips/tutorials each month by clicking HERE.
I really like this quilt! I'm looking forward to sharing with you the blocks each month and of course, the finished Vintage Rouge quilt.
Here is my May Calendar Girl.
I make 2 of these blocks each month - the first one I mail off to my friend Sue and the 2nd one I keep for myself.
I have an extremely hectic schedule this year traveling, teaching and creating 17 block tutorials each month.
Working on these stitcheries at night help me to unwind. I find the work very relaxing and enjoyable.
Hand quilting small projects gives me that same sense of "Calm".
I'm very grateful for Hand-Work!
What a wonderfully therapeutic and rewarding art form.

I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
