We are very excited about this program and hope you will all enjoy it as much as we have in designing it for you. the quilt is 60" x 60" and features fabrics from Paula's Companions collection. Here is a picture of the fabrics in the quilt!!
Each designer has picked their favorite fabrics to make their block... can you guess who picked which ones? Hmmm... wonder if there is a border?
Check us out and see !!!
Remember this... some people are NOT comfortable with "mystery quilts" - they are afraid they may not like the quilt. I'll ask you this question... are you kidding? Look at these designers!!!! Do NOT be afraid of this quilt.... it is awesome! PLUS - Paula Barnes did the setting design for the finished quilt...so that should tell you right there how great it will be.
I love multiple block quilts... because as you are making each block - you always end up with one or two "favorites". Then... I take that block (or blocks) and make an entire quilt from it. So.... it's like getting 10 - 12 patterns for the price of ONE kit! Now... I don't know about you... but by doing the math.... You get a BIG BANG for the cost!
Keep sewin' my friends!!!
