BOM 2017

Quilt  Doodle  BOM  2017

A Traditional Mystery Quilt

Finished measurement 63” x 80”

Small print fabric work best for this quit. Yardage… is an estimate with extra added in.

6 1/2 yards cream/ white background 

¾ yards green

½ yard- binding

16 different fat quarters- an assortment of colors will work best, the extra fabric left over from the Dresden design will be used for appliqué designs. The Aunt Grace line of fabric from Marcus Brothers would work nicely for this mystery quilt.

Backing – 6 yards

Heat n Bond Lite

Dark brown or black thread for machine appliqué

A new section or appliqué design will be announced the first of every month. The first section will be out January 1st. (2017) Patterns are FREE the month that they are released, as soon as the next month is released the previous patterns will still be available for a small fee… here are the links. What kind of quilt is it… I will tell you it is not a holiday quilt. There are no snowmen this time around. The appliqué designs are a collection of what you would find if you went to my grandparents home.

Tutorials can be found on the Doodle blog:
Patterns can be found on the website and on Craftsy:

    Te saludo desde Venezuela deseando que tengas un 2017 lleno de buena salud, abundancia y éxito en las metas que te has propuesto. Soy seguidora asidua de tu blog, pero nunca había intentado hacer tus BOM. Este me dejó enamorada y me parece excelente para usar los retazos que con tanto amor guardamos. Estoy muy entusiasmada y los dos primeros diseños son una lindura! Te felicito y te agradezco por compartir tanto con nosotras.
    Hice un post en mi blog sobre tu Bom. Aquí te dejo el enlace por si quieres verlo. Recibe un fuerte abrazo! Te enviaré fotos de mis avances.

  17. Hij Cindy, is there a place where i can get the free patterns (starting from january 2017). I was to late.

  18. Hi, I love your work. I didn't find your BOM until this week, I know I must be locked in a cupboard somewhere lol.
    I have tried to find all the patterns in Craftsy but looking at the above there are quite a few missing. Can I please purchase the set directly from you? This is one I really must make.
    Thank you Lorraine
