Quilting Blocks for every Week for a Year


Quilting Blocks for Every Week of a Year

So Folks I had a great idea, I am sure I am not the first but I can’t wait to do it. I want a quilt that I can grow old with and that tell me a story from the 1st of the new year to the last. I haven’t designed it yet but I want to start with the theme of each Block. I have been seeing so many great quilting blocks or squares and I really don’t want to have to pick just one.

I wanted a Block for each week of the year but someone said that may be too much, so I may have to cut that to every 2 weeks or 2 a month. She also said to make it double sided, which I like because you can change it. I wanted it to be a mix of my favorite things of every season and all my favorite people and places. I wanted to work on through out the year to give my self a lot of time to make each block great. The last quilt I made was 2 years ago and took me months but I guess that is what makes them so special. That was my first bigger quilt ever, I made the kids baby quilts which are much easier because of there size. This quilt I am planning will be big, I have a queen bed with a huge pillow top (deep pockets at 16 inches). So it will be between the Queen and a King size.

I love this chart to help see the size clearly From Suzy Quilts, click through to pin it for later.

With at said, I will be collecting all the pretty blocks I see for the next year and making one a week or all 4 for the month. I know I will probably forget each week knowing me!

Okay I decided on 48 Blocks with 24 on each side, no size for each one decided yet. I am struggling to think about the rest of the empty dates. I will have to see something I really like and add it to my list.
