***ANNOUNCING S & B QUILTERS’ 2020 MYSTERY QUILT ***

TO BEGIN IN AUGUST

image.png

Karla Nolte ‘s friend in Sheridan, MT is offering this project to our guild.

How it will work: S & B members who choose to participate can obtain a fabric kit from Donna or use their own stash. You will be given fabric requirements so you know what is needed. Then you will receive cutting instructions. During the first week of August you will begin to receive step by step instructions twice a week via email. The pattern is a MYSTERY until you have completed most of the quilt.

The beauty of doing a MYSTERY Quilt together – yet apart – is that we can all work at our own pace. If you are busy the day that new instructions come out, then catch up when you can. We can share our progress by email if we wish. It’s always fun to try to guess what we will end up with. Come on and join us in the S & B 2020 Mystery Quilt project! Karla Nolte dknolte@paonia.com.

Please review the 3 PDF documents – sign up, choosing your kit colorway, yardage and cutting instructions. If you want to participate but use your own fabric there is the option to only purchase the patterns. Please do not share the pattern.
