Sofea's calender quilt


My girl saw this fabric panel with calender for 2010 in one of the shops. She hardly ever asks for anything and since it was already January 2010, the panel was being let go at 100yen a piece.  I offered to (it seemed like a brilliant plan at that time) quilt the panel. 


However, when we got home, I soon realise it was not a good move, what with my already mounting projects to finish. Everyday she would ask if I have finished her calender, the preassure was almost unbearable so I put on hold other not so pressing tasks and set out to work on the calender. 


I finally finished quilting it last week. It gave me an additional chance to practice the free quilting motion. I backed it with white muslin and made the binding out of green scraps I've collected. I stitched the whole thing on a 4 hour journey to Tokyo recently.  

Now that it's done, I've no idea what she'll do with it, it's too small for a blanky and too big for her dolls. A sweet friend said 'Sofea will always remember the year you made a quilt calender for her..' I hope so..
