To celebrate National Quilt Month in March, Connecting Threads will offer a Mystery Quilt 2016 Quilt Along. This is our third Mystery Quilt - yes, we skipped 2015 - and promises to be lots of fun for all. We think you will enjoy making this three-part pattern. The catch is that you won’t know what the quilt looks like until Part 3!
What are the dates of the quilt along?
3/2 - MQ2016 - Fabric Selection
3/16 - MQ2016 - Part 1
3/23 - MQ2016 - Part 2
3/30 - MQ2016 - Part 3
4/6 - MQ2016 - Conclusion
What is the size of the finished quilt? It will be a lap quilt or throw, approximately 57-1/2" x 69-1/2".
Where will I find the pattern?
Each week's pattern and related tutorials will be available as PDF downloads in the Quick Link section and Discussion Forum below.
What is the skill level of this quilt?
Borderline of Easy/Intermediate. This would not be a good first quilt. A confident beginner, with experience sewing 1/4" seams, may find the quilt a challenge but doable.
