  • Linda

    I’m happy to see another year of Block of the Month – with my favorite color, red, and the fun of a mystery quilt. Curved piecing is a challenge and I’m looking forward to this!

  • Jean Palionis

    A new quilt along is always exciting and this one is no exception! Also, I do like the new “Stitchin’ Sisters” for the small quick projects
    to fill in between quilting projects.

  • Lynette Wilson
    January 1, 2020

    Love the Red Elegance Fat Quarter Pack. I just ordered it and will not only “follow along” as I have in the past, I intend to make the blocks as they are posted.
    Thank you for this blog and continuing Nancy’s traditions.

  • WIN MADDOX

  • Sally

    This sounds intriguing – I love to learn to use new tools and the Trace n Create is brand new for me! We usually don’t see curved piecing in a Block of the Month. I’ll be sure to watch Nancy’s Quilt with Carefree Curves this month!

  • Teri

  • Cindy Vines
    January 1, 2020

    I am so excited as a new retire entering a new decade. Finally I will be able to sew and quilt my heart out. Looking forward to making a BOM with the NZ Team! I have NEVER done anything like this before..and the color is red, my favorite. Very EXCITED!

  • Ellen Rittenhouse
    January 1, 2020

    This is the first BOM that has interested me. I will be loading the monthly pattern and directions. Since I’m not a fan of red I will be considering other color options or a scrap quilt option. The short stack, if I win, will make a burst of color in either of my choices.

  • Beverly
    January 1, 2020

    I love the Red Elegance fabric collection and have found previous NZP block of the month quilts beautiful and fun, so am looking forward to this new mystery quilt.

  • Kathy Hartwell

    What a great way to start 2020 with RED — A HAPPY COLOR
    2020 Nancy’s Red Elegance Block of the Month is fat quarter friendly. And fat quarters that are friendly to the design.
    2020 Nancy’s Red Elegance Block of the Month project lasts 12 months. And 12 months in order to get it completed.
    This sounds very exciting to me and I can’t wait for more info on this mystery quilt for 2020. And I can buy items for 10 -30% off. How great is that!!!

  • REBECCA Burraston
    January 1, 2020

    The red colors look beautiful. I haven’t really liked the idea of fabric bundles, but as a beginning quilter, I’m realizing putting together is an art form that I have not yet learned. Winning the fabric would be fabulous!

  • Jeanne Brown

    Red. My favorite color! I will be following along and will use some the dozens of red fabric in my stash. Thank you for continuing to post a Nancy BOM.

  • Ann
    January 1, 2020

    I am a beginner to quilting & I can’t wait to get started on this quilt. I sure hope I end up with a quilt I can show off. Winning the fabric would sure be a great help since i am on a very fixed income.

  • Kelly L. McMillan

    • Jan C
      January 2, 2020

      I’ve not liked doing Mystery quilts because I like to know what it looks like before I invest time or money. But I am on board with this one. Happy New Year.

  • Cheryl W
    January 1, 2020

    I’m a “red” person so this quilt is right up my alley. Can’t wait to get started. Finishing the 2019 one now and loved it, too.

    I won’t have time to do it but those reds are wonderful.

  • Vickie Bell
    January 2, 2020

    I have been collecting various red FQ’s so I think this could be a great time to do the 2020 BOM.I just need to sort into dark , medium and light and look for coordinating 1 yard pieces! A monthly assignment is so much easier to make a quilt than all at once especially when you have so many other projects happening!

  • Julie Kill
    January 2, 2020

    Love the New Red-based fabric collection form NZP!!!!! Red is my favorite color! Definitely planning on doing the BOM!

  • Sandra Chapman
    January 3, 2020

    RED is my favorite color and Ruby is my birthstone so not sure if that started me loving red but it sure did. I am thinking about doing a BOM this year as I feel the need to distract myself from all the hateful news in our world today. Nancy is so calming for me and I watch her on PBS tv EVERY chance I get. I think she would approve of my borrowing some calming activity from her by quilting a quilt in her honor. Beautiful fabric!!!

    Congratulations on the 2020 BOM. I love it, but will have to defer due to cost concerns. I so love Nancy Zieman and her team. It would be wonderful to participate in one of her BOMs this year! PS: This is posted by a beginner. Have a nice day, All!

    I’d love to participate but am on a limited income and have a ton of fabric. Is there a description somewhere of fabric needed by tones.. medium, Darks and lights?

  • Valerie S.
    January 15, 2020

    Having trouble choosing fabrics for backgrounds and binding. I wish the 3 choices for each were pictured side by side on the website.

    If choosing “diamonds,” or “tonal” is it better to choose same type of pattern for dark, medium, and light?

    I use to dislike the color red but as I have aged, I am liking it more and more each year. Why is that? Wish I knew! These BOM fabrics are beautiful,cheery, and look wonderful all together. I am sure the finished quilt will be the same. Thanks for doing the BOM and the give-away.

    Live the idea of a quilt along. I have done a few crochet along projects. I am a beginner quilter. My issue is I am not a red person. Nothing in my house is red. I like blues. Is there a fat quarter bundle in blues that I could use instead?

  • Bev Bolduc Aldridge
    February 13, 2020

    I love the colors you have chosen- unfortunately not available where I can get in person. It is February 13 so where is the February block all I see is January. PS unless I win the fabric I will use whatever I have for the blocks.

  • JoMarie

    Love the red and white combo fabrics used. My favorite color combo. It’s fun making up the mystery quilts. Already have that circular template that is used in May’s block, so, ready to go with it for creating this months block.
