New Mystery Christmas Wall-hanging and a special Cross-stitch Alphabet Sampler Throw

The Friendship Quilt has now finished. To replace this starting in January 2024 there is a new mystery quilt pattern composed of eight blocks to make a 49″ x 46″ throw or wallhanging in any colour. The step-by-step pattern is given for an autumn coloured throw, but I have also stitched a lovely Christmas one too. I will show this to you as we do each block. It uses a lot of 2½” strips and is made from Jelly Roll strips. Mine are both made mainly using scrappy fabrics from my Shoebox scrappy boxes.
For the cross-stitchers there will be a lovely statement sampler of flowers in a stitched border frame. The first one will give the pattern for the border and the corners, then there will be two flowers each month. These are also useful designs for cards, cushions, runners etc.
