Mystery BOM - Country Cottages!

We are excited to announce that we will be offering a Mystery Block of the Month for 2012!  The best part?  The pattern will be a free download available right here at The Shabby! 

Country Cottages is the first mystery BOM designed by Shabby Fabrics.  This darling calendar style quilt is just so much fun, featuring quaint cottages and some special themed surprises each month! The pattern will be available as a free download around the 7th of each month right here on on our blog.  This quilt features applique, hand embroidery, and wool felt accents.

Here is a sneak peek:

Want to use the fabrics shown?  Sign up for our BOM program, which runs February 2012-December 2012.  All fabrics, embroidery floss, and embellishments are included.  Enrollment fee is just $10 to reserve your spot.   Sign up today!

The pattern for Block 1 will be available around January 7th. 

Are you excited about this?  What do you think future blocks will include?  Have you participated in mystery quilt programs before? 


  1. I had snagged the photo and placed it on the side bar of my blog and directly bloggers to see what is FREE and NEW for 2012! I think this is something very exciting!!!
    Because I like more "aged" look I plan to use my stash and will likely kick myself for not jumping in and purchasing the monthly kit!

  2. oh, that looks great for 2012. I would like to sew with you, think, the monthly blogs will show to the month.
    have a good time

  13. Buongiorno, vorrei iscrivermi per il Country Cottage Mistery Quilt 2012, l'unico problema è che vorrei prima sapere a quanto ammonteranno le spese di dogana. E'possibile sapere il costo?
    Marina Genovesi

  14. Hello Marina,
    The cost each month will be $30 per month for International customers which includes shipping. The first shipment, however, will be $60 as it will have the blocks for January and February. We don't know how much customs duty will be added by your country. Thank you!

    Ciao Marina, Il costo ogni mese sarà $30 per il mese per i clienti Internazionali che include la spedizione. La prima spedizione sarà comunque $60 poiché avrà i blocchi per gennaio e febbraio. Non sappiamo quanto dazio doganale sarà aggiunto dal suo paese. Grazie!
