My good friend Denise (justquiltin) who I met online many years ago has a habit of twisting my arm. I’ll have to admit that she usually doesn’t have to twist too hard to get what she wants. How can I refuse her? She’s a great friend and she really has great ideas. I met Denise & Susan (Patchkat) through internet quilt block swaps. Somewhere in that time frame, I met Judy in an online group. We’ve chatted online for a long time and we’ve gotten together in different locations in Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana for quilting retreats.So….what is this collaboration? Denise has come up with the idea of a part BOM /part Mystery/part Blog-Hop Christmas in July Sampler. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like fun to me! We may have too much fun doing this!
Denise has designed the border of the quilt. Susan, Judy, and I will design the center blocks. Denise is letting you see what the border looks like so you can get a feel for the project….or should I call it an “adventure”?
Denise will post the general information on her blog in June and the final instructions in November. The patterns will be posted on our blogs during the months of July, August, September, and October. You will have to visit each of us during those months in order to collect all the patterns.
All pattern files will be in pdf only.
I am excited about our project and I’m honored to work with 3 of my most “favorite-est” people!
The patterns will be available for a limited time only. Each designer will determine the length of time “her” blocks are available.
Join us for some fine, quilty, fun!!!
Here’s a spreadsheet to help you keep up with the patterns you’ve collected. You’ll need to fill in the names of blocks where there are question marks.
