Happy 2012. Hope you had a fun and safe New Year's Eve. We did.
The end of 2011 brought the last block in another Mystery Quilt. For those of you who have seen the original the mystery was how close I was going to be able to get to the feeling of fabrics long gone. It really was a lot of fun and I like it a lot. I already have 2 Bible Quilts. My sister Nancy is undergoing chemo for breast cancer and she said she'd like it, so it has a home.
And I had so much fun redoing a classic that I decided to do it again. So this year we're going to redo the Collector Series. Linda and I designed it years ago as an 18 month BOM. I've reworked it a little so we'll send it out in 12 months. If you belong to the Mystery Quilt Club, you're already on the list. If you decide you just don't have the time or inclination for another quilt right now, be sure to let Tori (who does the shipping) know by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you aren't a member and want to get the blocks each month, email her or call Tori or Byron at 816-632-7632 to join.
You're really getting a block and a half each month so the cost is $22.00 but that does include the shipping. The only month we'll charge shipping is the month the borders go out. (International shipments will cost the same if we send your blocks in groups of 3 or 4. If you want them monthly the cost for Priority so we can track them is an additional $10.95)
Whew - that's a lot of info!
I'm really having fun redoing the quilt. Neither Linda nor I have the original. It went out on a trunk show and never came back. She thought I had it and I thought she had it. Now I will finally have my own.
Here's a sneak peek at the first block.
What has this got to do with the 12 Days After Christmas Sale? Well................
Make a comment, any old comment between New Years Day and the 6th (you'll have to come to this page to do it) and we'll have the Random Generator draw a name. The winner will receive all of the monthly blocks free.
Good luck ladies. I wish you all could win.
