The Sampler of 2018
The Scavenger Hunt BOM
Scavenger Hunt Quilt Along— 60X72 This quilt is part mystery. The layout is a double nine patch surrounding mystery quilt blocks. Each month you’ll be given the link to the quilt block on the guest designers site to sew. It will be fun to visit other sites and even though the layout will be the same, you can choose where to place the block in the quilt. Plus, there are two options for the outside border- dark or light.
Schedule: once a month, Wednesday. Mystery is revealed on the designers blog. January 2018 – December 2018
