Mystery Quilt - Sneak Peek

This weekend coming up a few of us ladies are participating in a sew day where we will be putting together a Mystery Quilt.

Two of the ladies participating are new to quilting and joined us for our Irish Chain Class a few months back. One is my Moms good friend C and the other is my best Friend B


Check us out below after a long day of cutting fabric for the Mystery Quilt 



What is a Mystery Quilt you ask, well its actually a great idea. You simply create a series of quilt blocks without knowing what the final pattern will be. The fantastic ladies running the Mystery Quilt day lead you though the instructions and techniques needed to make the Mystery Quilt. They are also an excellent resource and help when it comes to making your fabric selections.

Trust me its harder than you would think to pick fabrics when you don't know what the final quilt will look like, especially for a "Type A" person like myself.  All in all I am so happy with my final fabric selections. (Thanks Michelle for all the help!)

Have A great weekend!! Mysteries are fun but I agree, it is so difficult to decide on your fabrics when you don't know what's going where!!

Wow, I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Even with the same pattern, those quilts are all going to look so different! I look forward to seeing what you made.
