Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along

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.

Is everyone doing the Mystery 2013 again?  I missed it last year.  Perhaps I can find some stash to  use up.

Comment by donna rosengarten on May 5, 2014 at 7:06am

Diane I didn't see your post either-I assume it's because I wasn't paying attention to 2013!  I don't know which one you chose, but personally after I've made the 2014 Quilt I would probably use Option 2-only because there is more variation between colors.

Comment by Cindy on May 4, 2014 at 10:04am
Diane, I didn't notice your post and am sorry someone didn't answer your question. I will say that any of the combinations would work very nicely for this quilt. Good luck and look forward to seeing your finished quilt. I have one done and one more in progress. So much fun, just not enough time to get everything done.

Hey Ladies,

I am in need of a little input please, please.... Here is a pic of some choices for this quilt... I would love some input.

If you see fit to interchange fabrics please tell me Row 1 , Fab1, Fab 2 etc that will help me to interchange them.

The line of fabric is Plum Sweet by Blackbird designs. I will be looking forward to any and all suggestions.

Thanks so much for your help.

It is so nice to have company in 2013!

Diane - I love your yellow & purples. With the soft greens it is very springy. Just what we need to see at this time of year here in NH. Today is rainy and cool so looking at your fabric choices was a real treat.

As you can see from my post below, I couldn't decide on fabrics so am making 2 tops - one with the brown and strawberries and the other with the blue fabrics. I have promised myself that I will finish both of these before I work on the 2014 mystery. It's been hard but so far I haven't peeked at part 2 of 2014.

Dianne - Do you have fabric picked out yet?

Comment by Dianne Jackson on March 28, 2014 at 5:54am
Diane W. Your fabric pic's look great. I really like how the yellow just pops next to the purples. I didn't do last years quilt either, and when I saw it, I knew I had to make it too.

Hi Bonny, I am pretty new here and really want to do this mystery quilt even though it isnt a mystery any more. I have some ideas on my fabric but not sure it will work to well. I have pics if there is any one out there willing to give me some advice. Here are 2 of the best pics I took. suggestions for color additions etc is greatly appreciated. Thanks for any and all help.

Comment by Bonny Peters on March 25, 2014 at 7:57pm

I know I'm a year lat but here is a picture of my part 1 for the 2013 mystery quilt. The stripe fabric I am going to use for the border and possibly the binding. I'm making 2 color ways of the top using this fabric and I think I might try to make it 2-sided. We'll see.
