I needed a 2014 desk calendar with quilts in it. So I made one. Several years ago I did a wall calendar with altered paintings, which kept me entertained all year. I whipped up a few more collaborations between the Great Masters and me and used Blurb.com to design and publish a calendar.
The Cestello Annunciation
Collection of the Uffizi Gallery
The cover painting was originally by Sandro Botticelli
That floor just called out for quilt blocks.
Who doesn't need a little extra help in placing a sampler?
Each month has an altered painting
Woman Before an Aquarium
Collection of the Art Institute of Chicago
Detail of Henri Matisse's painting.

It will keep you amused all year and give you important holiday information. I needed all the silly holidays in one place. I can't tell you how many times I have missed International Talk Like a Pirate Day or National Polka Dot Day or National Peach Ice Cream Day.
The weekly calendar features important dates such as
National Dress Up Your Dog Day on January 14th.
Like yesterday was National Nut Day. Cashews or pink hair?
You can interpret the holiday any way you care to.
