July was a good month

I’m going to sew my block-a-days for July in a calendar format like this:
I think I’ll use muslin for sashing. It might be fun to make a large picture (quilt) to go above all the 4-inch blocks. That would be calendar art. I’m pondering various scenes such as Mt. Diablo, or a garden with tomatoes. It might make a fun wall quilt.

August has already gone too far for me to start a new block-a-day program. Maybe I’ll do it again in September.

I added one new block to substitute for my “down the river road” block for the 28th. The new block is a sport shoe to pat myself on the back for keeping going on my walking program this year.

You can make a 4-inch shoe block (or a pair of them) by clicking on the small graphic below. You will find foundations to print out for your own personal use.

I made the July 1 block quite a while ago. It is called "Economy block." the foundation for this block is here.

You are so inventive - what a great calendar quilt this will be.
The sports shoe is one of my favorites - of course, it is RED.

How cool! I love how your blocks look all together . . . and I can imagine a giant-sized quilt with a year's worth of blocks representing a year–think of of those tea towel calendars made large and turned into a block-a-day quilt and you can see where my imagination has taken your cool blocks ;-)

The red walking shoe is absolutely fabulous and so very YOU ;-)

Your July quilt will be wonderful! What a fun quilt with lots of memories that is! How on earth do you design foundation blocks and get them into a printout form like that everyday?

I agree with the crowd here, love the format....and now that you have decided to put it this way, I think the river road would fit in perfectly! I also think adding a pair of shoes to each month would be cool, because it's something you do all the time.'s a fun block!!!!!
