This calendar is a perfect addition to my quilting library. I like the variety of sizes from 6" to 14" and the easy to cut rotary directions! No templates needed! The color charts and block index make it easy to plan out a project. Definitely a keeper!
An update to previous review: Spoke with customer service and the lady I spoke to was fantastic. Without hesitation she immediately sent a new calendar! I still like the calendar, but I must say that the coiled binding on the second one is still a bit off as well. The coils were slightly bent out of shape again, but this time I was able to wrangle it back to shape a bit better. Perhaps the wire being used for the coil binding is a bit too soft....? At any rate, fabulous customer service!
Very enjoyable collection of blocks. Have made several already. It's fun to use the block shown on a friend's birthday when making a gift quilt for that person. Dimensions seem accurate but would prefer increments of 1/2 inch rather than 1/8. Would recommend this and will probably give some to quilting friends.
I would enjoy this calendar much more if it would actually sit and turn pages properly. The wire binding is really strange, so the stand/cover keeps falling down. When you try to turn the pages they poke straight out from the back instead of lying smoothly. I've wrestled with it in every possible configuration and it still won't lie properly. Not very likely to keep it displayed for very long because it looks bad and is annoying to deal with. Very disappointing.

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Judy Hopkins on March 9, 2011.

Judy was one of our most prolific and bestselling authors, having published 17 books between 1989 and 2011. Her collaboration with Nancy Martin, 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts, has sold more than 131,000 copies. Her Around the Block series, which ultimately became 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, was the design source for probably tens of thousands of quilts around the world. Judy was a major figure in the quilt industry for decades. She will be greatly missed.

To honor her memory, Judy's family is commemorating her work through a website and blog. Family, friends, and fans are welcome to post comments and share stories about Judy's quilts and the creativity she inspired. Visit JudyHopkinsQuilting.com.
