The past few months of 2019 were somewhat stressful for me and didn't leave much time to sew. Now that hubby is healing well from a total knee replacement, the daughters and their husbands have come and are headed to their homes, quilting and sewing are on my to-do list.
2020 One Day Mystery Quilt
I am looking forward to New Year's Day when I begin work on the 2020 Merry Mayhem Mystery Quilt. You can find the instructions for each part of the mystery on the internet HERE, or on Facebook HERE. The quilt pattern is named, Just Around the Corner and can be made in lap through king size.
The instructions for Part 1 and 2 are available now. Each hour, beginning at 10 AM EST Time (NYC time), the instructions for the following parts will be posted-one at a time. Print or save the directions because they will not be available after January 1, 2020. Invite your friends to participate, but tell them they must download instructions on their own computer, etc. A lot of work goes into the creation of a pattern and are copyrighted. It is a privilege to access a free pattern. As a designer, I hope my free patterns introduce my blog to quilters.
Scrappy Traffic Jam Quilt
Pat Sloan has a pattern for a quilt she calls Scrappy Traffic Jam. You can find the introduction HERE. I am happy to have hundreds of 2-1/2" squares alread cut, saved from many scraps over the past few years. I think this will make a fun charity quilt.
AQS Quilt Along 2020
While I like to design my own patterns for quilts, it has been awhile since I sewed 12" blocks for a quilt. AQS has a quilt along (HERE) where they will present one block each month. Their plan is to make a quilt a month using the block of the month. I want to make one block each month and combine them into one sampler quilt. I am signing up for the email to remind me of the block each month.
Have you found any quilt alongs to work on in 2020?
I'd like to hear if there are others I might be interested in.
Happy New Year to you, may it be filled with happiness and lovely quilting experiences.
