Calendar Girl

I bought the pattern for this Calendar girl quilt a couple of years ago in Pigeon Forge, TN. The main panel of the girl is about 52" tall. The series of mini-quilts attach to the girl's hands with snaps and are interchangeable depending on the season/holiday.

The mini quilts are finished except for sewing small buttons for eyes. The girl needs to be quilted. I actually started the quilting on it after taking these photos, but haven't finished it yet.

Here the girl is holding the Welcome sign that she'll hold when none of the other quilts apply.

These two mini quilts are for Easter and birthdays.

Next we have Halloween and the Fourth of July

Here are St. Patrick's Day and Christmas

Finally we have Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day.

Every time I worked on this I would hum the old Neil Sedaka song "Calendar Girl."
