Crazy Seasons Mystery Quilt - May 1, 2019

May 1, 2019

Crazy Seasons Mystery Quilt!
Good Day to All - from sunny Florida! 

Wow... it's OUR WEEK!  We are so excited to participate with all of the great designers in our group!  We jumped on the wagon at the very beginning and asked for a winter block.  You see.... Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year and we love to design projects for the holiday seasons!  Here you go... hope you enjoy!  Please read through this posting and the entire pattern before beginning your block.  Each designer may have provided you with different instructions for both piecing your templates together and/or working with your wool applique.  With twelve different instructors at your fingertips - you have tons of new learning opportunities.  Then you'll be able to pick your favorite techniques for future projects. 

Ordering kits and printing your FREE pattern are available at the bottom of this posting.  (Don't let your computer monitor fool you with the flannel colors.  The snowman background may appear to be a bright orange - it's a beautiful rich red.  The bright yellow background is a beautiful rich gold..... you're gonna' love it!)

If you have chosen to order our kit - you will see a variety of different prints on the flannels.  We have chosen to use Primitive Gatherings flannels for our block - which may differ a bit from the prints you see in our sample above.  They are still all from the same Moda family fabric - just a bit different in the print itself.
