The big reveal of Part 3 of the Festive Mystery Quilt will be posted on my blog Saturday morning as soon as I wake up. It would be very easy for you to catch up with us and I hope you do! Part 1 instructions are posted at Hazels Quilts, and Part 2 instructions are posted at Joanne's Needle, Thread, and Happiness. They were terrific in their hosting duties and have paved the way to Part 3, coming to a computer near you on SATURDAY! Yes, I am yelling!
Quilt Sue has even designed the quilt so you can make it scrappy or planned! She is amazing. The instructions are so well explained and easy peasy!
I'm starting to see lots of action around Blog Land as fellow Christmas quilters light up their blogs inviting folks to come by and see what all the fuss is about! Some of the rumours are true. I will have some Christmas fabric giveaways for anyone who leaves a comment on my posts that day. Here'a a small peak at some of the fabric that just might find it's way to your place if you visit that day and leave a comment.
As to the rumour of me wearing a dress to the party, just a little exaggerated! I did tell Quilt Sue I would have to dress up for the occasion and get a new dress, but I have decided since then, since I am now retired, to spend money on fabric instead. Good idea, right? So no new dress, but I may be hosting the party in my Christmas jammies. You know morning comes early here in Nova Scotia. We're on Atlantic Standard Time so we'll be well on our way to completing Part 3 by the time the West Coasters open their eyes!
Anyone who joins us that day will be able to link up with Mister Linky through my blog so we can all share and enjoy the quilting party together. Of course, that is presuming that I will be able to figure out how to do it. have joined Linky parties in the past, but have never hosted one. Fingers crossed...
Before I go, I have to tell you that my Cherry Blossoms quilt is finished. This is actually the Pink Lemonade quilt that was so popular in Blog Land recently, thanks to Lori's expert tutorials at Humble Quilts. When I told a friend I had recently completed a small quilt and named it Cherry Blossoms, she immediately thought of Cherry Blossoms. You know, the flowers on the trees?
Guess what? When I named my quilt, I called it Cherry Blossoms because it reminded me of the colors in those luscious Cherry Blossom chocolate bars. Don't you think?
Chocolate and pink...yummy!
A look at the back:
So there you have it. Thanks for dropping by. I better run now to clean the house for Saturday for the Christmas Quiltalong Party. And when I'm done cleaning, it's a great day for quilting!
