Becky Brown has offered to do a Mystery Quilt at the store! Following is all the information I have about the class:
Mystery Quilt 9-month project taught by Becky Brown
We will meet at Sally’s Back Porch Fabrics the first Tuesday of the month starting
April 2017. The charge is $10.00 a month. Sally will have a discount if you
choose your fabric at the store. I have some tricks to share with you on choosing
fabric. The fabric requirements and choosing your fabric are given the first week.
So, you will not need your machine. Cutting and Construction steps are posted in
the following months—just enough to keep you guessing! Every month I will have
a special quilting trick for you. On the last month, we will give you the final
construction steps and reveal the mystery. Begin by digging through your stash for
scraps or yardage in assorted light, medium and dark values as instructed in
Fabric Requirements, or purchase new coordinating fabrics. It is important to
remember that mystery-quilt patterns emerge best when high-contrast fabrics in
color and/or value are chosen. Do not select directional fabrics unless you are
willing to ignore their prints. Gather the total yardages listed. Now get ready to
have some fun!
