Here's how it works...

We'll be making a Calendar Keeper wall hanging and a decorative removable block for each month (12 blocks total). The first Tuesday of each month we'll put up a new 99 cent PDF download of the monthly block design. You'll be making blocks one month ahead, so you have all month to sew, and then the next month you get to enjoy it! Tuesday, February 1 the first download was made available--it was the March block pattern.
You'll want a 12 inch calendar to fit in the Calendar Keeper pocket. The top of the calendar will be folded in the pocket out of sight, so it's perfect for those free business calendars.
Two Connecting Threads staffers will be sewing along with you and posting photos. Teri is making a traditional/country version, and Sue will be sewing a bright/modern version. Now's the time to start thinking about what kind of calendar you want to make. The patterns will work with any style, and they will be designed to use small scraps from your stash. (Of course, we'll also let you know what we used.)
The block patterns will use many different techniques, from applique to basic piecing to paper piecing. Quilters of all skill levels are encouraged! We hope you join us for what should be a fun and stash-busting block of the month.
