I’m loving the concept of the ‘mystery quilt’ & challenged myself to complete it.
Who did you have in mind for this challenge? Experienced quilters? Beginners? Both? Not all members of 2Q are able to attend your regular meetings, and I saw this as a brilliant exercise to have more people involved in the grass-roots of what 2Q is all about… learning new skills from the more experienced members.
One thing I would appreciate in the notes/instructions is ‘tips and tricks’ for new players. I presume each block is designed with a particular skill /technique in mind. Is there a ‘best way’ to achieve the desired results? Are there pitfalls to avoid? Experienced quilters could gloss over them – those wanting to learn more would absorb them.
Yes, I second this. I am not a total beginner but I am not that good with ‘complicated’ block patterns yet (I love my squares!!). So tips for new players ‘best ways to do’ and how to avoid pitfalls would be great.
I am now adding Tips’n’Hints to each of the blocks.
I have pulled each block apart, to show you how I would stitch the pieces together.
You might have noticed that the later blocks so far are a little more complicated than the earlier couple.
Hi Can you tell me they allow a 1/4 inch seam allowance on their measurements – I don’t want to waste material in case I run out – yet to start first block – I am a beginner
Yes, there is a 1/4″ seam allowance included in the measurements.
Our Mystery Quilt contains 52 blocks, one for each week of 2020.
Each block is pieced and contains 4 colors – a dark color, a light color, a medium color and a bright color.
There is a sample block that you can download to try before the class begins.
We are also looking to offer some other courses, if there is enough interest
