Well, I have finally caught up on my Scottie calendar blocks. This was a challenge that our Modern Quilt Group started last July. Here is Nov, Dec, Jan, and Feb blocks.
As with the other blocks, I design them in Photoshop and use pictures of our scottie, Ranger, to create the scottie dog.
Everytime I work on one, it becomes my new favorite. The last 3 (Dec, Jan, and Feb), I added some embellishments (buttons/ribbons) to give them a little more dimension. I may have to go back to the other months and see if I can add a little something extra to each of them. Now November looks like it needs a little something extra. Any ideas?
Here is the list of Themes that we were asked to use for our calendar block challenge.
Jan. – A bird in winter
Feb. – Heart
March – National quilting month
April – Azalea Festival
May – Photograph
June – Beach/ ocean
July – America
August – Picnic
Sept. – Back to school
Oct. – Fall
Nov. – Thanksgiving
Dec. – Winter Holidays
Only three more to go and I can put the quilt together. I haven’t come up with designs for the final three yet. I may have to make a mini quilt in shamrock fabric and have the scottie sleeping on it. Just a thought.
