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!!!
One 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!
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.
