The Quilt for Life Calendar lets you create a calendar made up of quilt images, one quilt per month. The calendar is created for you in PDF format, so you must have a program that can read PDF files to view or print it. (Adobe Acrobat is the standard PDF file reader.) Your computer must also be able to access port 8080, since the calendar generator uses that port. If you are having problems generating a calendar from your workplace, consult your IT department.
As you view the Online Quilt Gallery, you add quilt images to your calendar by selecting the month and clicking the Add to Calendar button. You'll see which quilts you've selected for each month as you view the gallery. When you've selected all the quilts for your calendar, click the Build my Calendar button. Any months that don't have a quilt selected will have a quilt selected at random.
The Quilt for Life Calendar PDF files are large -- around 3 MB -- and they take some time to generate, so please be patient. Once your calendar is generated, it will be displayed in a new browser window. You should save it, then print it if you like. You may share the calendar with anyone you like. Feel free to make as many calendars as you want.
Suggestions for the Quilt for Life Calendar include:
- Make one for your legislators, and include a note that these kids are why they need to vote to increase diabetes research funding
- Make one for your school nurse
- Make one for your Mayor, and ask him or her to remember that November is diabetes month
- Presents for grandparents
