Introducing the third of 12 FREE! Quilt Block Tutorials in our NEW! 2021 Nancy Zieman Productions Free! Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Series! This handsome “Bow Ties” Block design features light shade bowties and medium/dark shade bowties in each of the eight quarter-square blocks, and is accompanied by a center square within the finished block. Earlier this year, Team NZP introduced our NEW! 2021 Nancy Zieman Productions Free! Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Series. Visit our January 2 Blog Posting to review the Basic Supplies & Tools Listing.

Our NEW! 2021 Nancy Zieman Productions Free! Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Series is a great way to finish a quilt in manageable monthly installments. One block at a time is an easy approach to creating a quilt. Whether you’re a beginner quilter or seasoned quilter, Team NZP’s block of the month series is a great opportunity to get stitching in the new year. In 2021, The NZP Team is honored to continue Nancy Zieman’s Block of the Month series with our first Christmas-themed quilt titled, Merry Christmas All Year Round Quilt! We’ll be sharing a quilt block tutorial on the third Saturday of each month, and we’ll be keeping the finished quilt design a mystery until later in December 2021!

    I love the fabrics in this mystery BOM project. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.
    Thank you for continuing Nancy’s legacy. I saw Nancy Zieman: Extraordinary Grace on PBS just yesterday. It was so moving. I am thankful for opportunities like this to do a project inspired by Nancy.

    The Bow Ties pattern is so attractive & the chosen fabric is just so sweet. Think that the block of the month concept is great as one gets to sample different patterns that will come together in one beautiful design.
