Announcing the Christmas Town Sampler –
A Collaboration Among Friends
- Denise Russart (http://justquiltin.wordpress.com/),
- Judy Laquidara (http://www.patchworktimes.com/),
- Sheryl Till (http://quiltingtizzy.wordpress.com/).
This project is being offered as a Block of the Month, where the center will be Mystery blocks revealed monthly and which you will collect through Blog Hopping our blogs! Denise designed this great batch of border blocks while Judy, Sheryl and I will be designing the center blocks to replace the question marks.
Each month you will need to visit each of our blogs to collect our latest block revealed for that month. Instructions will be in pdf format download only. The final instructions to set everything all together will be posted on Denise’s blog in November. So start in July, finish in November, on your bed in December!
Yardage for the background in the border sections and plain borders will be posted in June. Yardage for the other fabrics used throughout the quilt will not be given as this is a great scrap friendly, stashbusting project. You’ll have fun choosing the necessary fabrics from your stash to make each block uniquely yours.
Please plan to join Denise, Judy, Sheryl, and I in making your own special Christmas Town Sampler.
The quick links to my blocks are below! ENJOY!
