Christmas is this week and you want me to think about New Years!!!! Yes, I know that is what you are thinking, and yes, I DO want you to think about New Year’s Day and what you will be doing.

I will be hosting the 7th Annual New Year’s Day Mystery Quilting Event and I would love to have you attend. Here is how the Mystery Quilting Event works.

Register for this class now (or in the next few days) and print out the piecing instructions for the class project. Piece the quilt – don’t worry, it’s really easy – and have it on your machine ready for quilting on January 1, 2015. On New Year’s Day, beginning about 8 am Pacific Time (probably a little earlier) the first “Part” of the video instructions for quilting the class project will be activated. Then about every two hours, another Part of the class will be activated. By the end of the day, ALL the Parts will be activated and you will see what the finished quilt looks like. Work on your quilt while watching the video and you will have YOUR quilt finished, too!

This is a FUN way to spend New Year’s Day! If you are busy New Year’s Day, don’t worry! You have 60 days unlimited access to the video instructions and you can view them anytime to complete your class project.

This year, I am doing things a little differently. The class quilt, 4 Patch Frenzy, is an original quilt I designed just for this event. I have pieced it two ways, a traditional way with only two fabric colors and a scrappy version with many, many fabrics! Below are some photos – click on any photo for a larger view.

This is the traditional, two fabric version which will be quilted in a more traditional way.  This is the wall quilt size, about 65 x 65 inches.

Here is the Scrappy Version which will be quilted in a more modern style of quilting. This is the full size quilt top, about 74 x 101 inches.

BOTH styles of quilting will be shown in this class!

I have a Yahoo Groups email group created for this class and I am working on setting up a FaceBook group also. Students can then “talk” to each other before, during and after the class and post photos of their quilts.

Sign up for the class (Click Here for info) and send a photo of your pieced, un-quilted quilt by December 30, 2014 and your name will be put in a drawing for a $25 Gift Certificate to Longarm University / Longarm Classroom.

This is a FUN and creative way to start 2015.

I hope to “see” you in class on New Year’s Day 2015!
