Foothills Mystery Quilt {Whole and Half Hourglass Blocks}

It is the beginning of another month, and Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs has released the next set of instructions for the Foothills Mystery Quilt. In my excitement for the New Year, I jumped right on the instructions this month and I got the blocks done on New Year’s Day! Cheryl let us know that this is the last month for block construction… next month we get the instructions to piece the top! How exciting! The final blocks we made consist of Whole and Half Hourglass Blocks.

    How & where do you find all these BOM’s I’ e been trying to find out! Would love to participate!

    1. That is a fantastic question, and I hope I have a good answer for you. The person who commented just above you, Terrie Anne @Childelike Fascination, *just* launched a new website called QuiltAlong (http://www.quiltalong.net/). I think it will be just what you are looking for!

        I also think I’ve put several things together, you are the precious quilter thst did the Tessalating Leaves I loved so much, are you gonna make a copy of your pattern with instructions? Would love to make one!
        Also got your reply to the mosiac fabrics, thanks so much for redponding so timely! Love your work! A truly talented artist…
        And is that the Millenium Longarm you are using, and how does it compare to a Gammill?

    Hurray for next month! Have you played around with all your blocks together, anticipating how it might turn out? Or are you waiting patiently?

  9. I’m pretty excited about next month being able to see what this top will be like! This has been so much fun!!! Still loving your contrast in color!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
