Jan Patek's 2009 Mystery Quilt

Last night I finished the center block on Jan Patek's 2009 mystery quilt. There's just something about houses in quilts that I really love - especially this block. I love the fabrics she chose, I love that TALL chimney and the very slightly wonky windows. Which still need the panes stitched - I guess it isn't done after all!

I have February and March's installments to complete, and I imagine April's will be in my mailbox before too long. I really want to catch up with this one by the end of this month. You can see what the quilt looks like so far, as well as an outline of the rest of it, by clicking here. Once she put up this much I knew I had to make this quilt. I just love the folky, primitive appliqué on her quilts.

Ooooh, I almost signed up for that a while back. I love it so far. Of course, I love all her stuff.

Great block Patti!! I too am a house lover, they always bring such warmth to a project.

I'm going to have to quilt following your blog... I want to make everything I see! I have been tempted with that mystery quilt, but hate to pay all of that postage. I'm sure I will be so jealous when you get yours finished. lol
