Yes, I know that Christmas isn’t here yet, but what do you plan to do after Christmas and New Year Day is over and the dreary, foggy, snowy, rainy days arrive? Are you planning on cleaning and reorganizing your stash? Are you planning to finish all the leftover UFOs from 2013? Or are you planning to travel to someplace warm and forget the weather and enjoy yourself?
But I cannot afford to go anywhere, especially after the holidays and all the bills roll in, you are probably thinking. Well, that’s where our imagination comes in. Welcome to a new mystery that will start on New Years Day and will continue every Saturday until the end of April.
Imagine being in a nice tropical beach surrounded by glorious bright jewel tone colors. Think of beautiful sparkling blue lagoon with parrots of reds, greens and yellows, and of sparkling diamonds in shades of purple. These are the clues to the colors you will need to start on our journey to the south seas. Think of warm inviting, sparkling jewel tones!
In order to go on this tropical paradise trip, you will need to pack up your scraps of 2.5 inch strips in jewel tones, and black for the background. These jewels will be sparkling against the background, dazzling and bright. Now grab your Pina Coladas, umbrellas, beach bag, chair and towels and get ready to start! But not until January 1. The cutting instructions will be listed on December 28th. Further directions will be posted on my blog with photos to help along the way at https://cozyquilts.wordpress.com/.
Tell your friends about the mystery and if they join Scrappy Quilters, I will send you a FQ from my stash.
