Our NEW! 2023 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. Plus our BoM23 is fat quarter friendly. Whether you’re a beginner quilter or seasoned quilter, our block of the month series is a great opportunity to get stitching in the new year. Team NZP is honored to continue Nancy Zieman’s Block of the Month program with our free monthly block sewing tutorials! We’ll be keeping the finished quilt design a mystery until later in December 2023! Hint: This year’s quilt is not a block sampler and will not have borders!   This year, you may choose from two different Fat Quarter Bundle Colorways by our friends at Benartex: Choose Hugs & Kisses Fat Quarter Bundle includes twenty-one 18″ x 21″ fabric rectangles –  Or, choose All American Gnomes Fat Quarter Bundle includes twenty 18″ x 21″ fabric rectangles.

Gather Your Fabrics and Supplies

All blocks will feature fabrics from one Hugs & Kisses Fat Quarter Bundle or All American Gnomes Fat Quarter Bundle! Finished quilt measures approximately 72″ x 72″. For this quilt project, you will need:
