A Christmas Eve Surprise and a New Years Day 2019 Mystery

Special People have Birthdays on Christmas Eve

If you have been following this blog for a while, you know that my birthday is Christmas Eve.   Lest you think that’s a terrible day for a birthday child, it wasn’t really.  My mother made sure she got everything Christmas done ahead of time, and we actually had a birthday celebration for me.

It wasn’t until I became a mother myself that I realized how inconvenient that all was.  Holy cow, I could barely keep up with Christmas, never mind adding MY birthday to the mix!  People wanted to “treat” me, not realizing I had a million other things to do that didn’t involve taking time off.

So I started the tradition of giving out presents to other people on my birthday, and yes, you have one coming!

OK, I cheated a little bit today. It’s actually the cutting directions for the quilt mystery 2019 that starts at 9AM Eastern on January 1st.   The introduction that included the fabric requirements is here: /announcing-the-new-years-day-mystery-dutch-delight/

Just as an FYI, the BOM directions will go out December 29 so they won’t clash with this mystery.

Without further ado, here it is:

The mystery is over, but you can still get the pattern! Just click on the Buy Now button below.

Don’t forget to send me your pictures!   Yes, even your fabric choices or your steps.  As a thank you, I will send you the entire professional pattern at the end of the mystery.

Enjoy your holidays!

  1. Happy Birthday. At least your parents kept your birthday separate from the holiday next to it. Mine always combined my birthday with Valentine’s day. I too have taken to giving presents on my birthday in thanks for being alive.
