And the first thing we have to do is give away a couple of magazines.
The first winner is Janet Wells who said "I'm thankful for family and friends......and time to quilt."
and the 2nd winner is Mimi who said "I'm thankful for my kids and grandkids."
If both of you ladies will send Tammie your snail mail information at email@example.com we'll get your magazines right out to you.
Enjoy - the ladies at Primitive Quilts and Projects have done their usual awesome job.
This is Pep's favorite Christmas decoration.
It's an Olive the other reindeer pillow
and you can find the pattern in our Special this month Up on the Rooftop.
The idea for the pillow came from a children's book Olive the Other Reindeer about a dog named Olive. It was a favorite of our children and now our grandchildren and has been part of our Christmas for years. And of course when I was designing quilts for the book Olive had to be included. Those are Jake's handprints and footprint when he was five.
He's a sophomore at UMKC now. He's grown a bit since then :)
I just finished the drawing for the 2017 Mystery Quilt and, of course I really like it. It's 76" x 84".
If you are a member of the 16 Mystery Quilt Club you are automatically signed up for this one unless you notify us. This keeps the blocks coming for those of you who look forward to a block each month. We do understand that some people will always need to drop out. If you're not a member yet and want to join, please email Tammie at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. I'm getting ready to do the fabric part and need to know how much to order.
First here's a sneak peek
But we need to find a name and I think we'll have a contest.
The winner will get the BOM free each month.
If you have a good name for the quilt let us know in the comments section sometime between now and December 19th.
We'll announce a winner on the 21st
And off I go to write the instructions for my blocks in the Moda Blockheads BOW - watch the blog for more information.........
And information on the QNNTV MdCalls Quilt-Along - "Over the Meadow" - it should be airing soon.
Keep quilting ladies.
