mystery quilt experiences

Our Mystery Quilts are original designs that incorporate a variety of techniques while providing simple instructions and quiltHacks that will benefit both beginning and seasoned quilters. There are no 'Y' seams, curved piecing, or similarly challenging techniques in our standard Mystery Quilt Weekend package. 

How it Works 

  • Sign up in our store. Login at any time to view your available mystery projects, listed under your account. 
  • The fabric requirements are posted at least two weeks in advance.
  • Cutting instructions are either posted in advance or used as the first installment on Saturday morning, depending on the pattern.
  • Fabric kits (which include the pattern) are available for purchase from our online store.
  • Of course, as with all The Quilt and Needle projects, you may choose to pull your fabrics from your stash or buy them from another source.
  • The first installment of piecing instructions will be posted no later than 10:00 am CST on Saturday morning, and the final installment will be emailed no later than 6:00 pm CST on Sunday evening.
  • You start the weekend with cut fabric, unaware of the pattern you will follow, and by the end of the weekend you will have a completed quilt top!
