My 2022 Block of the Month design is being launched today, and it's something a bit different!
Days of Delight is an ever-so-practical, gorgeous perpetual Calendar.
Days of Delight is a great project to use up your scraps and left-over jelly roll strips, charm squares and layer cake pieces.
The Calendar consists of 33 separate parts including mini-quilts, hexagons and a beautiful box to store all the parts.
The Wall hanging measures: 19½in x 23½in (50cm x 60cm).Months Mini-quilts: 3½in x 7in
Days of the Week Mini-quilts: 5½in x 6½in
Number Hexagons: 2¾in x 3in
Box: 8¼in x 10¼in x 2¾in.
Each month, the patterns for various sections of the Calendar will be released, commencing in January 2022, with the final patterns being sent in December. All patterns will be sent in pdf format by email in the second week of each month.
I have called this new design "Days of Delight" for a number of reasons - "Day" is obvious because each day you change the mini-quilts to the correct day and number, to keep the calendar up to date. - "Delight" because I hope you will be delighted with all the little pieces that make up this design, but above that, we can always find some delight in our day, in spite of our circumstances, especially when we have eyes to see the beauty that God has put around us in nature and in our lovely friends and family.
I hope you will join me in this programme for 2022 and share in the fun of making all the parts that make up this project. There is going to be a load of variety, lots of applique and plenty of hand-stitching - all of which gives you opportunity to set some time aside each month to indulge in a slower pace of life, which is something I think we all need in these uncertain pandemic days!
