I was excited to get the mail today...the calendar with my quilt came in the mail! It's so cool to see something you made in a product sold to so many people.
The other quilts are amazing and I have seen them all in person because they are all winning quilts from the International Quilt Festival 2008 Show. The page above has a nice write up about each quilt and quilter.
My quilt is the month of August which is perfect since I took the picture for the quilt in August. The garden looks just like that as I write.
Martingale Press prints the calendar and they did a beautiful job. Mary Green was so helpful they even sent me a disk of the shot the photographer, Brent Kane, took of my quilt for the calendar. You can read more about the here . It was part of a Round Robin Slice Quilt made with 7 woman who made a block for my quilt: Suzanne Thibeault, Louise Redding, Gail Niland, June Peckingam, Carol Middleton, Jane Lowell and Linda Ramrath. They each ended up with a quilt too.
They were on display as a special exhibit at the Lowell Quilt Festival. The pictures below show all the quilts.
