On the 4th and 5th Tuesdays of the month we put together study groups & workshops to learn new techniques, patterns, or handmade items for our Quilt Show boutique. There is $5 fee to attend these workshops to defray prep costs for the presenter unless otherwise noted.
October 22 & 29, 2019 - Mystery Quilt - Dani F.
Modern Mystery Quilt - 10am - Noon
Please contact Dani if you wish to participate if you did not sign up at the business meeting.
It is easy and quick. All squares and rectangles....First session we will make 2 blocks. A left block and a right block. Finished size is 14"
For those who fear commitment or who want to see what mystery quilts are all about, bring enough fabric for 2 blocks, your $5....and make 2 blocks. You will see the finished quilt at noon. The second session is cutting, sewing, and layout.
Choose your own size quilt and determine how many blocks to make:
2 x 14 = 28 5 x 14 = 70
3 x 14 = 42 6 x 14 = 84
4 x 14 = 56
Per block - you will need: x2 - cut only enough for TWO blocks!
Focus fabric - a 6 1/2" square - can be directional*
Framing fabric - a 2 1/2" x 44" strip - should not be directional**
Sashing fabric - a 2 1/2" x 44" strip - should not be directional**
Secondary Sashing fabric - a 1 1/2" x 44" strip - solid**
Do not cut any more than this even if you are planning on 20 or 30 blocks; 2 1/2" strips are not the most economical way to cut.
*can be different for left and right blocks
**should be the same for all blocks
