I found a cute calendar which had sweet, innocent pictures similar to the ones used in the Thimbleberries panels. I scanned them in to my computer and designed quilts to go around them. I made each quilt finish at 32 x 34 inches, so they would be the same as the other nine quilts. They were all finished in 2006 and 2007.
I made two of each of these four quilts. There is one for my mom and one for me. I printed the panels on a iron on transfer, but wish that I had purchased the more expensive pre-prepared fabric to print on. Regardless of what the panels are made of, I love them. It gives me warm fuzzies to know that I designed and made them.
I will be showing these in order of the months, rather than in the order I finished them.

These quilts all have a light cream or muslin on the back. They were made with Warm and Natural cotton batting. They have simple machine quilting, mostly stitching in the ditch.
I love having a quilt for every month to hang behind my door. Have you ever designed your own quilts? This was a first for me.
