Calendar for Quilters

Y’all. There I was…just minding my own business, catching up on other people’s blog posts in Google Reader, when I came across this post at Want It, Need it, Quilt!

Go ahead, click on the picture. You’ll be transported to The Bitchy Stitcher where you can buy your very own 2012 Quilter’s Shirtless Man and Spicy Burrito Calendar…an actual calendar of men holding quilts in one hand and a burrito (get your mind out of the gutter!) in another. Megan at The Bitchy Stitcher is freaking hilarious – here’s proof.

And if you’re wondering – yes, I did purchase one of these hysterical calendars. I even got one for my MIL Carole (a fellow quilter)! Carole, guess what’ll be in your Christmas stocking!

Summer Sampler, DWR and 2 Bags

I finished 3 more blocks from the Summer Sampler Series, so here are the 9 blocks together – 3 more to go!

I am way behind on the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Along hosted by Kaelin at The Plaid Scottie, but I do have some arcs completed.

I also have two bags to show you. The black and red one is for my UGA alum husband, who drives a red car with black racing stripes, and the blue one is for my mom (part of her birthday present). I used this tutorial for the blue bag.

The other part of my mom’s birthday present is a quilted version of her company’s logo, to be framed and hung in her office.

Logo quilt-ified
I basically just printed the logo onto foundation piecing paper, and pieced it that way.  Not too bad if I do say so myself!
