Pearl P. Pereira has offered a free mystery block of the month for the past two years. I very much like how she plans her sewing instructions so that the quilt is assembled as you go along…so, I had the center finished at the end of month 9. The directions for all months are still available, just click on the Forum link from her website and follow along from there.
This month is the final month, and she’s given us templates and directions for a very nice applique border. However, this quilt is already about as big as I’d like, 51″ x 72″ – perfect for a couch quilt! The borders are 7″ wide, so the quilt would end up quite a bit bigger. So now I’ll do some thinking on how I want to finish it.
