This year the Lynette Anderson Design's mystery button club quilt is a bit different, and has a free bonus pattern included when you sign up for this. The bonus pattern is Winter Joy, and the pdf pattern for this needle book will be automatically emailed to you when you purchase the whole 6 months of patterns in advance. This project is designed to keep you busy stitching while you are waiting for the post to deliver your patterns. I've used Lynette's new festive collection of fabrics for this, Scandinavian Christmas 2 which I bought recently from Cross Patch...
...there are 3 pockets inside, including a clear vinyl zippered pocket, which I've filled with a few essential bits and bobs for when I'm ready start stitching the first block of "Peace and Joy" - threads and needles, basting glue, a needle threader and my favourite Clover thimble. There's also a wool needle keeper, which I've trimmed with a small piece of vintage lace, and I've added a clip to keep my scissors on too...
...the front of this needle book has been hand embroidered using a selection of variegated Valdani stranded embroidery thread, and has been embellished with a cute hand painted wooden snowman button. Now I've finished this needle book, I'm really looking forward to the patterns arriving in the post. There will be 6 blocks altogether, and each pattern will arrive with an accompanying wooden button. I've signed up to do this BOM from Coast & Contry Crafts and Quilts here in the UK, or you can download the PDF patterns directly from Lynette's online shop, Little Quilt Store. Are you joining in with this BOM too?
