    I decided to make a real calendar with one of the sets of the Sun Bonnet Sue sets I received from the swap last year for one of my daughter's birthday present. She is going to be 52 and I wanted to give her something to make her feel younger. She had such a hard time of turning 50. I came up with the idea of wooden frames for the blocks and actual calander to hang from and will be making kits to sell to other quilters that will have a pattern for the block sleeve and instructions for making the blocks and adjusting the cords to make the wooden bars work.
    I will probably make some sets of blocks with the sleeves and wooden bars and cords for non quilters. This is the set I made from the blocks I received from the Sun Bonnet Sue swap in 2010. I want to thank everyone who participated in the swap.

    I love your Sue blocks. That is a good idea. Are the calendar pages seperate from the Sue's so you can use it for any year? I might have to copy your idea! Thanks for sharing.

    Yes all you need to do is get another calendar that is 11" wide. It goes on the bottom bar.

    Bars and cords
