We’re bringing you a free pattern and video series called Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt to celebrate Christmas in July. It’s a good time to start something for the holidays. And… it’s a MYSTERY!
Each week in July we will release one video tutorial with a FREE pattern with a little help from our quilty friends. If you’re new to quilting, the detailed videos will show you how to cut, stitch and sew every step of the way! We won’t reveal the look of the quilt beforehand. That’s a secret! If you participated in our Merry Mini Mystery Quilt last year you know how fun it can be.
We have a great group of quilt designers joining us for this event! Each week we’ll visit one designer’s blog for the video and pattern.

Thursday, July 30 – Finishing Pattern // The Jolly Jabber Blog
Be sure to “hop” to each blog to get the free block patterns and video. You can share this button to show you’re participating.
All you need to start with are fourteen 2.5″ X 42″ strips (or a Jelly Roll) and 2.5 yards of background fabric. This quilt finishes at 50.5″ square. Bonus: In case you’re interested in making this quilt larger, Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts will be sharing finishing instructions to enlarge the quilt to 70.5″ square with the addition of borders using the leftover scraps. So stay tuned for those instructions on July 30 and follow Edyta’s blog for more info.
