A quilt, a calendar, a good cause

Pin It Some of you may remember the most recent quilt that I made and finished.

I was in a bit of a mad dash to finish that puppy.  It was originally supposed to be for my special friend's December birthday.  But then something came up.

Megan, otherwise known as The Bitchy Stitcher (who is also one of my favorite customers) had this crazy idea for a calendar.  What kind of calendar?  Well...  the Quilter's Shirtless Man and Spicy Burrito calendar, of course!

What were the rules?  A man.  Without a shirt.  With a quilt.  And a burrito.  Simple enough, right?

But my willing man didn't have a quilt!  So I had to finish it in time for the calendar.  Didn't I? 

Of course, he went above and beyond the call of duty.  I told him I was leaving to get him a burrito and when I got back, there he was.  Butt nekkid, y'all.

There were a total of 14 men that volunteered to pose for the calendar, but we all love the cover model the best!

What is the point of this calendar?  Megan's brother has brain cancer.  So she thought it would be a fun and humorous way to raise some money to help with his medical bills.  All of this information can be found on the links I provided above.

Remember, this is a fun calendar for a good cause that would make a perfect gift for the non-sense-of-humor-challenged.  These men were pretty brave to step up and do this for the women they love.  You can find previews of all of the men on the site where you can order a calendar.  Or two or three.  Or TWELVE, like the cover model's wife did (I ordered two... for now).

There are coupon codes to get the calendar at a discounted price, if you look for them.  Or email me and I can give them to you.  If I could buy a billion of these calendars and send them to everyone I know, I absolutely would!  So what are you waiting for?  Go! 


  1. I subscribe to The Bitchy Stitcher, and put my order in right away for some calendars. And in my comment (on her blog), I said I was so disappointed because I was hoping they'd all pose like Caleb. I mean, um, he's so brave, and handsome, and daring, and nekkid. I mean, I really DID, I mentioned Caleb by name in her comments. And bless his heart - you need to be really really nice to him and tell him all of us crazy women just love him for posing all sweet and cuddly and nekkid for us.

  2. You should see the out-takes that weren't used in the calendar! =]

  3. Saved the best for last didn't they. I hope I never meet this guy in person. It will be hard to keep from blushing and stammering. I echo what Deborah said. Oh, my!

  4. Lovely! :D Such a brilliant idea and what brave guys!! :) *admiration*

    ...I wonder if I'd get my hubby to pose for a little private calendar of my own... Maybe I could just cover him in scrap fabric though??? Plenty of that around... :D LOL

  5. Kudos to these men for stepping up to the plate for such an awesome cause!

  6. I just sent an email to one of my LQS's to ask them to carry this calendar.
