Welcome to the “2014 Designers Mystery Blog Tour” from Fat Quarter Shop, I am so thrilled to be part of this event! We were asked to design a mystery star block and choose a special “Star” in our life to name the block after. I would like to share with you a little about someone very special to me, my daughter Anna.
There is something about her that is simply magical, it is hard to explain in words, but I noticed this from the time that she was very little.
She has a little smile that is always able to put a spell over me.
She is always ready to reach the stars and do her very best. I have always loved making outfits for her, little girl dresses…
… and now the ones for special occasions.
As she has grown to become an amazing young lady, I have enjoyed every minute with her and can’t help but be proud of her. Her magic is always there, honest, kind, thoughtful, and caring, I could just go on and on.
And yes, she still has that special smile - I have dedicated my block to “Magical-Anna”
This “Mystery Block” of the month is created from my “Snowbird” Fabric Collection.
Inspired by the beautiful colors of a crisp winter day; heavenly blue skies, frosted branches, shimmering snow, and even the birds that stay around though winter and keep me company during the cold days.
This collection offers abundant lights in both batiks and prints.
Clear contrast between lights and darks.
The “Snowbird” Collection Prints wonderfully compliment the layout of the star blocks to create an amazing quilt.
I can’t wait for you to see the finished project! I hope you will consider joining this “Block of the Month” at the Fat Quarter Shop if you have not yet.
Do you have a “Magical Star” in your life? Leave a comment by March 28th and share your “Star” with me to be entered into our drawing and maybe get a Snowbird Jellyroll rolling your way.
I’m looking forward to hearing about your “Magical Stars” and seeing your beautiful mystery quilts made.
A special thank you goes out to all of my fellow designers that have created blocks for this quilt, please be sure to stop by their blogs as they share their stories about their “Stars”
