Information

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.

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

Lesley, well worth waiting for!  So glad you finished it!

Comment by Candice on September 18, 2014 at 1:26pm

Lesley, It's really nice.  Well worth taking the extra time to finish it.

Comment by Lesley Smith on September 18, 2014 at 1:07pm

After all this time I finally finished my quilt top.  Hooray!  This was only the second quilt I ever tried to make and I got intimidated by the Flying Geese so I gave up.  Over a year later I finally had the confidence to finish it.
