Announcing the NEW! 2023 Nancy Zieman Productions Free! Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Series! 

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!

    I love the all American gnomes fabric

    I have a question though do you absolutely have to have the no hassle triangle ruler? I have everything else and would love to join in

    I cannot seem to get to the patterns.

    I am wondering if there will be multiple blocks each month, or if this is the only one? I like the “less is more” design, no crowding is good.

    The Hugs & KIsses colorway is my favorite for its pretty colors in whimsical styles.
