Mystery block-of-the-month : “Bohemian Bouquet”

In 2008, I'll be launching something new and fun: a mystery block-of-the-month program called “Bohemian Bouquet.” The starting session will be Saturday, Jan. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at Quilters Loft Company in Mooresville NC. If you think you might be interested in participating, please call the Quilters Loft Company and ask them to put you on the list to get more information. We will have more details and pricing information available soon.

If you don't live near Mooresville and would like to participate, please e-mail me and let me know to put you on the list to receive more information.

Here's a sneak peak at the first block and a look at how the rest of the 48x48" quilt will go together. You won't find out what the rest of the blocks look like until you pick up the kit each month. You could do this as needleturn appliqué or – if you want something really fast and easy — fusible appliqué with satin or blanket stitch around the appliqué pieces. The center block is 20 inches square, so even though it looks intricate in the photo, the shapes are actually large, and the corners rounded.


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
