A Review on the Mystery quilt

Howdy folks,

Did you play along with the mystery with us over the weekend? If so, we would love to see your pretty top! Come over to the forum and show us.

This is a great little quilt. It will perfect for my new baby, once he/she is about toddler size. Actually, my 7 yr old could fit under it. So it will see some long usage, I am sure.

For you beginners, this is the perfect quilt to try out and practice your HST's (half square triangles) and your flying geese. You make 5 different blocks. So you get plenty of practice.

For you who have been quilting awhile, this is an easy quilt. But that does NOT mean it's boring! OH NO! There is a twist or two from your usual pattern, that makes it a fun quilt to put together.

It only takes 5 yards, 1 yard of 5 different fabrics each. So whether you like bright colors, pastels, Americano, 1930s, darks, whatever, it will be smashing in any colorway.

And just because I don't like to leave you without a picture or two....



Just a few, small sneak peeks...


Cause it's not a mystery...if you know what it looks like beforehand.


Thanks for stopping by! Come and join us on the forum.
