    I love calendars.

  2. Paula Tripp says:

    The hardest quilt block I made was for the first quilt I made. I have yet to start my second one but I am still researching patterns. I want it to be perfect as it is for my daughter.

  3. Karen Ryan says:

    Just started quilting and I am so stoked! So this is my hardest, LOL

  4. Candy Perry says:

    I love old time patterns. I tried a Cathedral Window 2 years ago and never finished it. I disliked it so much.

  5. Mary Mac says:

    I have been interested in Crazy Quilts and find this a bit challenging.

  6. Sandi Dumesnil says:

    I agree with the others. The first was the hardest for me. I have so many kits (UFO’s) I need to complete it’s embarrassing! I have an embroidery machine also so combing the two is exciting!

  7. Susan Novak says:

    I haven’t made a complete quilt yet…lots of pieced tops and half finished pieced tops. My granddaughter is getting married in 6 months so I am determined to make a completed one for her.

  8. Myrna Goddard says:

    Just joined a “Box Quilt” group. We each purchased our own fabric. I got two yards of 6 fabrics. You decided what size square you want and if there is a fabric you want in each square you can designate so. You can add the boarder/backing fabric so folks can see what you will be using, if you want.

    Now this box is passed to a different person each month, which means I have someone’s box and I have to make a 12″ square. She has 4 fabrics (which I think are ugly together) and I have to make a square that will fit into her quilt.

    Talk about tough. There are thousands of samples out there and ideas galore but her fabric is ugly.

    I think I will do the broken 9 patch using my favorite of the 4 three times. Just a thought. Still working on it.

    I taught myself to quilt, after looking at few magazines, I learned a lot more, but I would love something like a calender to find new ideas.

  10. amelia gummings says:

    Love the idea of a calender in my sewing room to inspire me.

  11. MARY STOTT says:

  14. Carol Adams says:

    I would love to win one of the calendars.

  15. Nancy says:

    I am currently taking my second quilting class. “Quilting 102″. We are working with triangles and doing a pinwheel table runner. I find piecing the blocks together to be quite relaxing and I’m loving my new hobby.

  16. cathy sutton says:

    I could use that

  17. Waltine says:

    I want to start quilting this looks like a great way to start.

  18. Shelly Christensen says:

    I love quilts and calendars maybe I would have the inspiration to finish the ones I have almost done, LOL

  19. Odette says:

    for a long time I have admired lone star quilts and was afraid of all those points ! but I finally made one last summer and am very proud to say my points are fine !

  20. Lenora says:

    Would love to try this!

  21. Penny says:

    The hardest quilt block I’ve ever done was the compass star. Oh my goodness. It was SEW hard I had to tear out stitches SEW many times, it’s a wonder I didn’t distort the fabric.

    My block did not turn out as I wanted and hoped for, but I can always come back to it again in the future IF I can find it amongst my many UFO’s :)

  22. Kathy says:

    Love the calendar and would love to win. The hardest quilt block for me for some reason is log cabin. I know most people don’t find it hard but I think I have a mental block when it comes to them . But I do love the look of a scrappy log cabin.

  24. Kathy says:

    Can’t believe I won, thanks so much.

  25. Leslie says:

    I have always said “I am NOT a quilter, I’m an embroiderer and sewist” but I found a quilted embroidered wall hanging I could not resist trying. Quilting is not as easy as it seems. I’m still working on the quilting part – it is hard work and gives one a real sense of accomplishment and wonder, as in “I did that?!”

  26. Brenda Howard says:

    The hardest block I ever made is a Quilt of Valor block my bee is making for our quilt. Although not visually difficult the measurements were off on the pattern or the design was off because out of 8 of us we all had problems. It was the Squares and Star block from
