Victoria over at Bumble Beans is asking bloggers about what inspires them this week.
My recent inspiration is this linen calendar tea towel from 1974, which I purchased from a thrift shop for $1.
I like the blocks of colour, the saturated colours, and the funky fruits and vegetables.
Usually, I just stockpile my linen finds for some as yet unknown future project,
but I decided to cut this one up into a tea cozy to give to a friend.
I machine quilted around the calendar blocks and free motioned around the fruits and vegetables.
Then I bound it in Harley orange (left over from my mother's HOG quilt) and it's ready to go.
Thanks for inspiring me to be inspired, Victoria!
Brilliant! I love it.
Clever, and cute!
Here's what I did with some linen calendars.

Have you ever looked at Teddy Pruett's quilts? She uses parts of dish towels and a bit of everything. Take a stroll through her galleries. She is one wild woman when it comes to telling stories and making quilts.
