If you’ve ever come across a stack of almost-perfect, well-made “orphan blocks,” you naturally wonder why their maker didn’t see the project through to the end. And in the case of Anna, that maker was so close! Aside from a section of embroidery missing in the “December” block—to be fair, she probably got busy with the holidays!—these pictorial blocks featuring the months of the year were complete. They were also completely adorable. 

Each block features embroidery; some feature appliqué; and a few textural elements appear as well (e.g., the bunny in April’s block has a fuzzy cotton tail!) The dimensions of Anna make her a quilt fit for the wall—just like a calendar, but way more fun.


Dimensions: 22 x 29 in.
Block source: Iowa Quilt Museum, Winterset, Iowa. Original maker unidentified.
Started: ca. 1930-50.
Finished: 2023.
Description: Wall quilt. The months of the year are represented in 12 blocks, featuring  illustrations in appliqué and embroidery. Black sashing. Machine quilted.
Backing: Red and white striped cotton broadcloth.
Finishers: Mary and Marianne Fons of Winterset, Iowa.
Condition: Excellent.
Imperfections: Every Quiltfolk Foundry quilt in our shop began its life as an unfinished vintage top or collection of loose blocks. We seek out lost tops and blocks that are in good condition, but due to the source material’s age and care history, some imperfections in the finished quilts may be present. We hope you’ll see them as we do, just another part of the story.
