New 2015 Crazy Quilt Calendar Just Released!

The new calendar is out and I am honored to say one of my blocks is included.  Pamela of Kitty and Me asked if I would be willing to work up a block for November to be part of the 2015 calendar she was working on.  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  The most difficult part was creating a November block that didn't scream Thanksgiving since that is how I am geared.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year so I just gathered fabrics that were warm and comforting.  (Of course I had to include purples).

When I think of November I think of all I have to be thankful for and Fall harvest.  Living in the midwest state of Iowa pumpkins, sunflowers, colored corn, pussy willows, spider webs and wildflowers all come to mind.  I hope you enjoy every month of this calendar!  I haven't seen all the blocks yet, but of the artists I know creating blocks for it I'm sure you won't be disappointed.  Below are some close-ups of my block...

Here is a listing of all the designers who have participated:

Mary Ann Richardson
Nicki Lee Seavey

What a delight it is to see this! I love the spray of fall flowers and can't wait for the calendar to come so I can study them closely, along with all the other details.

Thank you all for the lovely comments. I was so surprised and delighted to be asked to participate in this. I still feel like a newbie. It does me good to hear your positive comments. I can't wait to receive my calendar also and drool with the rest of you! Be sure to check out the other participants if you haven't already by visiting their links found at Kitty and Me.

Connie - I just received my calendar and got to see your block up close - GORGEOUS!!! I'm not a fan of the fall but your block made me feel so warm and comfortable - just wanting to curl up in front of a fire... so pretty!
