March Calendar wall quilt (pattern by Kim Schaefer)

I have completed 5 calendar wall quilts from Kim Schaefer’s Calendar Quilts (12 months of Fun, Fusible Projects). I do not plan to complete the fall or winter wall quilts because I have lots of fall and Christmas wall quilts. image I made a few changes to the March quilt.  I used one piece of fabric for the light blue background instead of a pieced background of 5″ squares.  I did not add the beige appliqué squares to the border of the quilt.  I free motion quilted the background with a leaf design before adding the appliqué pieces.  I used a combination of  free motion quilting and the blanket stitch to attach the appliqué pieces.  imageCan’t wait to hang up my new wall hanging. Guess I will have to wait a couple of months.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
