Mystery Quilt

 

“Just Around the Bend”

 

Starts January 2020

 

Inspector Klu-Sew has a new mystery quilt for you!

 

This quilt is approximately 40” x 60” without any borders or sashing. The quilt requires 1¼ yards each of 3 colors (light, medium, & dark). You will be making a total of 24 blocks. Then in Month 6 you will receive 11 different options for how you quilt can be laid out. (All involves either using setting using sashing and cornerstones or not!).

 

“Clues” will be for PICK-UP at QGS only! NO MAIL OUTS!!

 

Cutting & piecing instructions will be available on the 1st of each month.

 

You must pick up your “clues” each month!

 

Once the month is past, those instructions will not be available!

 

COST:

 

Fabric purchase (for Mystery Quilt) of 3¾ yards is required. If you want your quilt larger you may want to purchase fabric for sashing and/or borders.

 

Pattern in free!

 

You will get a 15% discount on your purchase!

Lori Holt’s Newest Book: Farm Girl Vintage 2


 

1st Saturday of each month, 10 am

 

First Session Saturday January 4th

 

The monthly lecture style class is free, but there is a required purchase of approximately three (3) yards of fabric (suggested for sashing and inner borders). Of course, like all our classes, you get 15% off your purchases for this class and on the day of class, you get 15% off storewide. We do not carry the Riley Blake fabric line for this quilt, but in our eyes, it is a stash buster using all your fun fabrics out of your stash. Registration is required, so call the Shop and get signed up.

 ***************************

All of our Special Programs or Monthly Programs require a commitment from you for the length of the program. Signing up for a Block of the Month is the same as putting a quilt on "lay-away". You are making a commitment to purchase the entire set of patterns or kits. There are NO exceptions to this rule, so please don't ask if you can discontinue a program once you've joined in.

Please note that in general our BOM programs provide for the fabrics to complete the quilt top only. If backing is included in the program it will be expressly stated as so.
