“Concealed in Colorado”

Inspector "Clu-Sew's” 2021 Mystery Quilt will be starting in January. Choose from two sizes and two setting options to create a beautiful surprise upon completion. Each month for 6 months you will receive a clue that presents cutting and piecing instructions for a portion of the quilt. In the final month, the setting options will be revealed to complete the quilt.

This is a 3-color quilt. There is no class fee, but fabric purchase is required. As with all our classes, a 15% discount for class materials is given. “Clues” will be for PICK-UP at QGS only! NO MAIL OUTS!!
