Not All Who Wander Are Lost - Month 1


Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness Bind them
In the Land of Mordor were the Shadows lie.
~The Fellowship of The Ring

So begins The Lord of The Rings and I thought it a proper beginning to our block(s) of the month.
Welcome to the first month of Not All Who Wander Are Lost. We hope you are ready for a whole year of wandering together through J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece 'The Lord of The Rings.
Every first Friday of every month in 2013 I will post new Not All Who Wander Are Lost patterns and in December you will (hopefully) have 29 finished blocks and a layout so you can finish your Quilt just in time for Christmas :P

Not All Who Wander Are Lost is a collaboration between seven designers Breanne Cremean, Regina Grewe, Daphne Seymour, Michelle Thompson, Schenley Pilgram, Jennifer Ofenstein, and
