Old Tobacco Road!
It's time for our Labor Day Quiltville Mystery! It starts this Friday, and I'll post the link to the first step here, and on my website.
This is a sample shot of the fabrics I've used, and some hints as well! You have a couple options with this quilt. If you choose to do the "couch" size, just omit the optional borders. The quilt center measures approximately 56-inches X 78-inches. It's bigger than a lap size because all of the men in my life are over 6 feet tall, and require quilts to be long enough to cover their shoulders and wrap around their feet :c)
If you want the quilt bigger, follow along with the optional borders segment, and you'll end up with a full size quilt that measures approximately 81-inches X 104-inches!
Are you ready to come Quilt down Old Tobacco Road with me? Click here to get started with fabric requirements! The Mystery begins Labor Day Weekend.....Friday August 29!
So how is this Labor Day Weekend Mystery going to work? Simple! I'm going to post everything as fast as I can get it up, starting Friday August 29th! That's right! You can start sewing on Friday,and sew straight through Monday if you want, and with any luck at all, I'll get everything uploaded before you actually get to the next step! :cD
This will be a "self paced" mystery with no 2 week break in between steps,but you can sure do it that way if you want. Take your time if you need to, or sew like a quilt-fiend with the pedal to the metal if you sew-desire! When you get to the end of one step, there will be a link to click to the next, and the next and Sew-Forth! Most of all, enjoy yourself while you welcome in a beautiful scrappy Fall, while enjoying the last warmth of Summer 2008!
