weekly wrap up + linda & harriett 2013 quilt calendar


At this year’s National Stationery Show I fell pretty hard for Linda & Harriett’s neon quilt calendar. It was functional, pretty, neon and massively overscale in terms of a typical calendar. Right now I’m drawn to anything that large because it feels so dramatic and different. So I was thrilled to hear that Liz at Linda & Harriett had released her 2013 Quilt Calendar! Each enormous (there are thirteen 26″ x 40″ hand screened prints) calendar is part of a limited edition of 200 and will be sold at a handful of stores across the country as well as online. In addition to the beautiful colors, I love that the calendar prints themselves (the pattern, without the calendar detail) are sized to be fit into a 20″ x 20″ frame, so when you’re ready to move onto a new month you can still use (and frame) the print. Each calendar comes with a hanger made from American oak and brass so you can easily display it on the wall. I’m definitely getting one of these for our office, so if you’d like to place an order before they sell out, click here for more info and to place an order ($280). The price is definitely higher than typical calendars, but the scale and quality of the prints really feels worth the investment for me (Each one is a frameable print, so it breaks down to $23 per monthly print).

I’m heading out for the weekend (pumpkin picking in the Hudson Valley!) so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and we’ll see you on Monday! xo, grace
