The Most Hilarious Quilting Calendar EVER!

If you've been quilting for awhile, chances are you've seen a good number of quilting calendars. On each page a beautiful quilt shines out, full of bright colors and cheerful detail, perfect in every way.

But don't you find this all a bit boring? Can't we spice our quilts up a bit and create a calendar that is truly noteworthy?

Yes! Introducing the Quilter's Shirtless Man and Spicy Burrito Calendar:

This calendar was put together by Megan over at The Bitchy Stitcher who via a combination if interesting circumstances, came to own 14 photographs of naked men draped in quilts, clutching burritos.

No, not their burritos! Get your mind out of the gutter!

Each man is tastefully arranged on, or draped in a quilt, staring off into the sunset or right into your eyes. You can see a few more photos right here to get an idea of exactly how spicy this calendar is!

Another wonderful thing about this calendar is it's helping a family in serious need. Megan's brother has been battling brain cancer for more than a year, and all the profits from the sale will be going to him and his family.

Now you can pick up a copy for $19.99 right here at Right now you can get 15% off your order if you use the coupon code OKTOBERFEST305 before September 23rd.

I just wish I'd managed to convince (bribe / trick / force) Josh to pose draped in Release Your Light....oh well, there's always next year!

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day


  1. Leah - imagine my surprise seeing my hubby staring out from your blog. I've come to expect it on Megan's blog, but <*chuckle*> ...

    The calendar is a fundraiser ... I encourage your readers to go, buy .. and enjoy.

    The story w/ the cover quilt -- HE made the quilt. Designed and sewed it as a surprise for me. [He also appears in October. Appropriate for the cornfield and jack-o-lanterns.]

    As ever!

  2. THANK YOU, LEAH! As always, you are awesome and I adore you. Making this calendar was a great experience and I hope we can do it again for 2013!

  3. This is absolutely hilarious!! I think I have to get this as a white elephant gift!!!!!!!
