2015 Designer Mystery BOM-Fat Quarter Shop!!!



Blog banner-01

I am very excited to share with you the 2015 Designer Mystery Block of the Month that Fat Quarter Shop is running….I have participated in previous years but this year is pretty special…The quilt is made using my next fabric line…Snowman Gatherings 2 due out in quilt shops in May. SG2 has a few new colors…grey and light powder blue!! along with the same navy, creams, tans and medium blues…so its a great line like the first one with an updated twist with some new colors that will blend right along with the previous ones!!  How fun is this not only to be asked to do a block this year…but to use my fabrics!!! Super cool…over-the-top!

The 12 blocks are designed by my fellow Moda designers and I co-designed the setting along with the gals from the Fat Quarter Shop…they are awesome to work with and we just spent some time brainstorming and throwing ideas around until we came up with the final product!  Which is a mystery….so we can’t do a total reveal…but it is a very neat and different quilt with lots of personally…and if you are a snowman lover???…well lets just say this is a “no brainer” you have to sign up and join in all the fun…the details for this quilt are on the Fat Quarter Shop Site HERE    Make sure you check out the finishing kits and backing options as well…

We can give you a sneak peek of our block (meaning not the whole block)…mine is the bakeshop…perfect if you know what a sweet tooth I really have!!! I am a snob about it though…only bakery or homebaked goodies for me, (no packaged preservative sugar snorkels)…a girl has to have some standards…



Here are some more photos of this quilt…without showing you the whole thing!!!

IMG_6363IMG_63422015DesignerMystery_1One of the questions we are supposed to talk about was…what is our favorite place in the world…Mine is actually HOME…but I know that is not very exciting for you as it is for me…but besides HOME…I spent some time after Chrismas in Jamaica this year…Nick and I ran away from it all and relaxed and had a blast…One of the things we did was visit..Rick’s Cafe…in Negril…home of cliff diving….I have to say the minute I layed eyes on that cliff..the water…I knew I was jumping!  Nick thinks I am crazy, but hey…I can’t help it…I am very adventurous, and I love doing things that are a little dangerous!!! Here is photo of this amazing place…it is also listed at one of the top 10 bars in the world!  I know why!!! and it not the alcohol!10882243_10203801157245474_5499232690684034572_n



As I stated earlier this DM was a collaboration from a bunch of cool women who I get the opportunity to be associated with…They are my Moda Sisters…they are very special to me because… they know…you know…they just get it…we get each other…we are not the same…we are all totally different…be we all have  that something in common…we know each other pretty well with only spending a little time with each other a couple of times a year.

Here is a list of all of us….PLEASE stop by their blogs as well! (sorry the links to each designer are not working…but GOOGLE is your friend, just type their name and they will come up!!)Designers Collage-01

  1. Love that house block!!! There hasn’t been a different “take” on that traditional block and I’m so glad for this one! The front porch is the part I love especially…………..a beautiful fabric line and a fab BOM!!!!!!

  2. The Mystery Quilt Along is going to be so much fun! And your fabric line is awesome! My favorite place to be is in Alabama with my children and grandchildren.

    I took the quiz and got Church Quilt Block.

  3. I do love your new fabric and it looks wonderful in such a wintry quilt. Perfect name and perfect theme!

  4. Hi Lisa this quilt looks so cute I have been drawn into ordering it and the finishing kit. Great fabric and cute snowmen how fun will this be. Took the quiz I got the church block LOL they don’t know me well. Michelle

    1. Hi Marty. That BOM was put on by Fat Quarter Shop. I checked the link and it seems they have since taken it down. Unfortunately, I do not have any other access to it. I would check with them to see if they still have it available somewhere. Sorry I’m not more help. Good luck!
