folds upon folds

Sixteen years of calendar quilted. I've decided that I'm going to keep it elusive to avoid being didactic by not stitching the outlines of individual days. I also am thinking about ways to imply extension beyond the calendar structure by leaving the possibility to add to it. I realized today that it takes 28 years for the calendar to catch up with itself because of leap years and the 7-day week, which means that once you are 28 you start experiencing simulateous dates and days (for example, June 27th of 1984 and 2012 are both on Wednesdays of their respective leap years) as you have experienced them before. This seems significant.
