This week is gonna be good times at the Jolly Jabber! We're celebrating the launch of our 2010 Designer Mystery Block of the Month, so party hats on!
For the past three years, we've been birthing this sweet baby called Designer Mystery. Each year, it's a crowning glory, a prized jewel, our little darling, and yes, like anything worth birthing, sometimes an insolent teenager. But each year it grows up to be a beautiful/fantastic/brilliant quilt, and then several months down the line, you all get to see and partake!
So here we are in 2010, launching our newest Designer Mystery baby out into this big, wide world! (Does that mean today is its birthday? Do BOMs get birthdays?)
The very first block, designed by Gudrun Erla of G.E. Designs (*looks around* I think I can tell you that much without getting in trouble, but if anyone asks, you didn't hear it from me), is now in the hands of many a member, and that's what we're celebrating all week! And everyone's invited to party with us!
In fact, some of y'all have already finished your blocks (you Speedy McSpeedersons) and have added them to Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas Flickr Pool, i.e. Sherri's!
Haven't signed up yet and want to know more? You can still join! Never mind if you've never done a BOM before or are new to quilting -- you CAN do this :) We've designed it for every skill level, and each block is a cute little surprise of its own!
This Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we're going to give away Designer Mystery-related prizes in honor of this momentous Launch Party/BOM birthday party and to thank our designers for their hard birthing work :)
