Challenge yourself and take the plunge into a mysterious quilt project! The photo left shows the whimsical focal print in both colorways, with springy blue, pink, and green coordinates, and background to match the ground of the print.
Easy enough for a confident beginner, this is a four-part mystery quilt program involving pieced blocks. You will know your color scheme but not the design. Each of the four “clues” will come to you once a month, giving instructions on how to make a pieced unit and how many to make. The full pattern comes to you as the final “clue.”
As the clues arrive, will you be able to guess what the completed design will look like?
