I love calendars and especially perpetual ones if it's easy to change them every month.  And I also needed a clever way to use up some of the accumulated bitty blocks I had acquired in a Flickr swap.  So I came up with this design- a quilted calendar with paper tags for the days and banners made using 5 bitty blocks that represent each month.  A small quilted circle for the month completes them.  The banners are held on with velcro.  The paper tags sit down in little pockets made with strategically sewn twill tape.  The days of the week are stamped on fabric with a permanent ink. Grid quilting completed it.  I used 2 layers of batting for stability.   




Here's June-


You can click on this link to see a mosaic which has links to each banner individually, if you want to see all 5 blocks in each of the 13 banners.

This was a fun project, took me a couple of months from start to finish, sewed on LOTS of binding!  LOL

This is awesome! I love the way that the banner fits each month and makes it different rather than just having the name of the month.
