Calendar Quilt Block

While visiting with my children, I worked on this block for my calendar quilt. It is hand appliqued and the eyes are buttons that I will sew on after the entire quilt is quilted. I think that if I sew the buttons on now, they will get in the way while the quilting is being done. This block was enjoyable to work on because most of the pieces have rounded edges. The star presented the only challenge.


  1. Isn't he cute!!! I always love button eyes.

  2. How did I miss this post? He's adorable! I can appreciate appliqueing the curves rather than points too.
