Holiday Solstice #17 & Best of 60's Membership Open!

I am beyond excited!  Today I'm releasing Clue #17 of Holiday Solstice and kicking off enrollment into my next Mystery!  

Not only am I opening enrollment for Best of the 60's, my next Mystery, I'm also revealing my fabric selection for both my main selection and my alternative.   Both fabric lines are new to the market, and will be releasing shortly!

Fabric Selection

For my main selection, I am partnering with Island Batik and have selected their Peacock Galore fabric line, by Claudia Pfeil

  • Note: There are only 20 fabrics in the line, so I am doubling my FQ for the Fuchsia-Purples and Oranges fabrics.

The following Shops have all the information needed and will be preparing fabric kits.  They are taking pre-orders now: 

For my alternate selection, I’m partnering with Moda and have selected their A Blooming Bunch fabric line, by Maureen McCormick (from the Brady Bunch)

The following shops have all the information needed and will be preparing fabric kits.  They are taking pre-orders now: 

If you are looking to use the same fabric as me, these shops know exactly what I'm using, so they are an excellent place to start.  These fabric kits will go fast, so make sure to reserve them soon.

You are welcome to make your own fabric selection, and these same shops can help you with that too.  Plus, over the next few weeks I will be sharing what will work best for this quilt.  

I'm going to tell you up front, this Quilt is going to be a keeper!  Or you are going to want it to go to someone really special.  😉 You want to use fabric that you LOVE!  

Let me provide you with some other details.  By the way these details are available for download on my Website:  CLICK HERE

Quilt Size and Fabric Requirements:
  • Quilt Size:  Large Throw/Double
  • Tool Required:  Star 60
  • Fabric Requirements
    • 26-30 Fat Quarters 
      • Ideally made up of 4 Colorways, dual Complimentary color plans will work great.  See my fabric recommendations below to get a better idea of what I will be using.  You can elect to reserve one or both of those fabric selections or select your own fabric.   Note: From mid-October to early-November, I will be offering tips on fabric selection on my weekly Blog post.
    • Background:  4 ¾ - 5 Yard*
    • Border: 2 ⅔ - 3 Yards (includes Binding)
*Note, I've taken into account a couple mistakes, but I've also accounted for good remnant/scrap management, week to week.  If you aren't the best of keeping your strip remnants, you will want to purchase the higher side of the yardage. 


This is a Mystery Quilt series will be a Technique Building Series for the Star 60 tool. 

·      Each week, I will take you step-by-step through all the fabulous units and blocks that you can make with this tool.  There will be at least 24 techniques shared throughout the length of the series. 

·     Multiple Membership levels are available for this series for nominal fees.    

  • For both Membership levels, the earlier you enroll in the series, the lower the price.   This week, through the 8th, Launch Week Discounts are in effect.
  • Since there are a lot of new techniques with this Mystery, the Clue & Class Membership is being offered and will provide weekly step-by-step online videos that can be watched repeatedly, whenever you like.    
  • As always, each week, the Blog will feature a mini-pictorial and a couple quick tips for each week’s block(s) and remain online.  However, the Blog will not have the detailed measurements, those are in the Clues and the Clues will only be available through a membership.  

  • Recommendation: For those needing/wanting additional help, I highly recommend the Clue & Class Membership Option which will give you that extra help with step-by step guidance.

This weekend, is the time to get caught up, as next Friday will be the reveal!  I can't wait.   If you want additional help reconciling your blocks, beyond the actual clues themselves, you should scroll through this Blog.  It is there to help you.   I can not help you reconcile your block via email.  It is just impossible.

So, that is it for today, I'm teaching an in-person event for the first time since St. Patty's Day.  6 1/2 Months!  Wow.  Crazy.  It is a Stay in Your Bed Retreat, at the Yankee Quilter.  Should be tons of fun to actually get together with the Yankee Quilter gang!   If you are looking to book my next SIYB Retreat at the Yankee Quilter, register here.  Spots are filling up fast.
