Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along

To celebrate National Quilt Month in March, Connecting Threads will offer a Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along. This is our first Mystery Quilt and promises to be lots of fun for all. We think you will enjoy making this quick and versatile, three-part pattern, suitable for beginning and experienced quilters. The catch is that you won’t know what the quilt looks like until Part 3!

The finished quilt will be a lap quilt or throw, approximately 51-1/2" x 68-1/2". 

You will need an additional 3-1/4 yards for a three-pieced back. 

Binding - At least 250" of a continuous strip.


 
This would not be a good first quilt. Having said that, it is an instructional pattern. Each section is accompanied by detailed notes and photos for each step. Some of the piecing is very easy, some requires more precise work... but Ann provides many hints to help you be successful. The quilt is for a confident beginner with experience sewing 1/4" seams.

Well they sound beautiful Sandy and I'm sure they are. Would love to see them.  Hope you can figure out how to post the pics.

I don't know if I've posted anything before, so if I'm repeating myself, forgive me?  I was guild president 2013-14 for the Kountry Quilters Guild; they had a tradition of "President's Projects" for the entire guild to work on.  I chose this mystery quilt as our project, and it was fun.  I used fabrics from Connecting Threads, don't remember what line, but one was a red bandana print, 2 were "Itty Bitty Stars" in cream and blue, and the 4th fabric was a royal blue, since I wanted it in patriotic colors as the eventual destination of the quilt was to a wounded warrior at the local V. A. Hospital.  I wish to report that the recipient really liked the colors and the pattern.  One of the guild members made two different versions and these were also Quilts of Valor.  I wish I could post photos of them, but my computer and my digital camera have apparently agreed to disagree, and the most I can do is print the photos.  I'll use this pattern again, probably until my copy of the instructions wears out.  Thanks for the design.

Congratulations Lesley, it is a beautiful quilt.

Comment by Kathy Hylton on September 18, 2014 at 2:48pm

That is what this is all about.   If we get stuck, and we all do sometimes, there is always another project to work on till we are ready.   You came back and finished!   That is a real accomplishment!  Congratulations.  One more UFO out of the way..lol
