Mystery Quilt Challenge 2014:

THE STUDY OF FABRIC

question_mark

Do you have a sense of adventure?  Like a little mystery in your life?  Then “the game is on”.  Join us this year for the 2014 edition of the Mystery Quilt Challenge.

For this challenge you can make a wall hanging (40”x40” without borders) or a lap quilt (40”x56” without borders).

Fabric requirements will be given at the first guild meeting and the first clue will be given out to participants in October.  There will be a total of 6 clues, with the last clue unveiling the layout in March.

Blocks will finish to 8” in the quilt (8.5” unfinished).

Fabric Requirements: A good contrast between light and dark fabrics are suggested.

This quilt will also be wonderful as a TWO COLOR quilt.

Background (light or dark)

2 meters

Borders (OPTIONAL)

1/2 meter

The fabric requirements shown above are ONLY for the pieced portion of the quilt top with optional plain borders.  If you are going to make pieced borders, you will want a couple more fat eighths.

If you have a large “scrap stash,” this is a really fun quilt to make with scraps. You may choose to make the top from all scraps for both the dark and light fabrics; or use dark scraps and one single light background fabric.

Remember that “light” or “background” fabric in a quilt can be something other than white or cream colored fabric.
